…. that’s pretty much the look on Chewie’s face everytime I go to drive him. LOL! He’s such a good boy, I simply cannot express how much I love driving him, but arena work is definitely not his first love. Hope to get out on the trails at least once or twice more this year, weather, daylight, and hunting permitting!
I was really lucky last night to get my husband out to the barn and he snapped a few photos of Chewie’s drive. I hope to try to get some shots of he and Luke, and even Jesse, out on the trails, but that is going to be difficult.
Chewbacca is not exactly Mr. Motivation; if you look closely, you can see I’m either clucking, kissing, or telling him to TROT ON! in almost every photo. My entire drive consists of getting my throat sore telling him to move out constantly, lol! But on a trail, he’s ready to go. I rarely canter him in the arena any more, but on trails, we will canter nearly the whole thing sometimes. There is a couple photos of him cantering above. We played around with some barrels too.
The days are getting short, the weather is turning cool, but there is still driving time to be had! Although with my trailer destroyed and now scrapped and gone, I am not able to get out to any more away trails or events. Big bummer! Oh well, we won’t “officially” stop driving until around Thanksgiving, but we will be going down to the weekends only as I run out of daylight in the evenings.
Have a good one!
