|Peebs and his new friend Trask|
We really didn't jump for a couple of weeks and then last week jumped three days in a row. I didn't plan it that way, but when offered a last minute lesson, one doesn't say no. I had jumped a little last Tuesday and Wednesday, just working on a few fences each day. Tuesday we worked on a line and Wednesday we figure eighted two diagonal fences. We're starting to put together canter courses but Peebs is pretty sure we should still be trotting every other fence. It takes a lot to keep him going and I wanted to stick with a few fences and establishing that yes, he has to keep cantering. My plan worked, except that on Wednesday we had our first run out. We were coming up to the fence when another boarder drove down the road and parked her car. Super scary because he's obviously never seen a car before. I think Peebs probably just caught it out of the corner of his eye, but he scooted to the left and went past the fence. It was very slow-mo and I was in no danger of coming off. We walked past the offending car and circled back to the fence without any problems. Peebs did seem a bit sheepish.

I was super happy with how good Peebs was that it killed me little to not be showing. But I've been telling myself that with a few extra weeks Peebs and I will that much better when we do make it into the show ring.
