|Phoenix says "Hi"|
To cool out I took him for a "walk" in the field. As soon as we headed out, he started trotting and prancing. He calmed down once we were out in the field. We did a full circuit then walked down the lane between the paddocks. Last year this is where we did our canter sets, since it's on a slight incline. As soon as we got to the gates at the end to turn around, Bud started jumping around again. Somebody remembers galloping up the hill! I made him stand and wait (and to take a pic) then we trotted up the hill. He had an amazing extended trot up the hill; it felt just like the one we had in our dressage lesson.
