Yesterday I took Bannie for a ride again. He went on a loose rein for a little, then as we started home, he tried to speed up agian. So, we did alittle work. We would trot down the trail toward home with the reins loose. The minute he sped up, I would tighten the reins until he slowed down. Then I'd stop him with the one rein stop, at first he didn't want to stop smoothly, but by the time we finished he was doing it well. Anyway, when we'd trot then stop, I'd flex him, then turn around, the direction he didn't want to go, and we'd lope on a loose rein unless he sped up. We kept practicing that until he was really smooth. He learned alot and I enjoyed myself.
I've been typing the second book up. I'm on Chapter 10...The Clue. I'm on Chapter 2 in the third book. I really like the plot for this book....it's going to be so much fun to write about!!
Lately I have been having trouble keeping sweet, so my prayer is "Lord, give me a singing heart today." My goal is to be as sweet as Amy....she is the girl I wish to be and she is really sweet!!
Alright, gotta get back to work!!
