Get ready

With the ADT coming up next weekend, I did manage to get Kat worked last night. He did pretty good considering there were a few things we needed to work on and couldn't manage to slip in and he has had the last two weeks off doing nothing.

I also put two more holes in his bridle and tossed the browband as well as the teardrop shaped thing that attaches at the crown with the blinkers. With the snaffle a little higher up now, he was less resistant about getting his tongue over it and being a twit, less resistant to respond and a little different all the way around.

I have also looked over our dressage test- good thing too because a couple things are different and the maps for the cones and obstacles have been posted...  So much to look at and remember. Honestly, I really haven't looked long or hard at any of it.  There is a carzy line of knowing your tests, the cones course and obstacles, and looking too long and too hard at them and confusing yourself in everything. how much is too much?

Here is a link to the driving club website with the order of go, the dressage tests, cones map and obstacle maps listed.  ADT #1. Go have a look and see if you might be able to do this. Remember- no callers for the dressage tests, even in training level. I also have a surprise coming for a few of you...

I have all your ADT events on my calendar and will contact you for directions if I can go. This past weekend was crazy busy in addition to me being sick. Still no word on when we'll be doing that trail ride.
