We are coming up on 6 months of training for Peyton! This month we were able to take a few field trips. Our first adventure was to Fair Hill, Maryland, for some trail riding through the woods, over a few bridges, and through some water. Peyton is a rockstar going to new places including self-loading onto the trailer. We were also able to travel to St. Augustine Pony Club for our first cross country schooling. Peyton was very brave and jumped everything (even the very scary black pipe)!
This month we learned that Peyton had some mild allergies and sensitivity to flies. We have been able to manage this with night turnout and fly gear. Peyton enjoys being turned out with his best friend Ditto (JC: We Found Love).
Next month we are hoping to start dressage lessons and going to a few more cross country schoolings. Hopefully we will start horse showing soon! We have planned a dressage and stadium jumping combined horse show on June 20th at Glendale Riding School!
