Two Awesome Weekends: Part 2

Welcome back to my Two Awesome Weekends!!

Part 2: Fun in Hervey Bay

Guess what I did on Friday???? I won’t give you time, HaHaHa!!!

I had my second jumping lesson on horseback at the Wide Bay Equestrian Park!! I rode Allusion (Ally for short) ย a bay, quarter horse mare who I have ridden lots before.

I practiced rising trot, sitting trot, did some figure 8’s, practiced turns, practiced jump position on the track, played some games where I bended through poles at at trot or trotted around a diamond shape picking up and placing back flags, and then I did some jumping. In my jumping I think I am improving but I have to remember to keep my heels down, my hands off the horses neck, my back hollowed, my eyes fixed ahead and a lot more!!!!!

After the riding part of my lesson, I untacked Ally and gave her a sponge over. The I practiced lounging a horse. Lounging is controlling a horse from the ground with a long lead rope that attaches to the horses halter or bridle and a long wip.

I had lots of fun at that lesson and I learnt a lot ๐Ÿ™‚

Then on Saturday Dad took Mum, Iluka and I out in the boat.

We had an awesome time. First we boated to Coongul Creek to have a snorkel. There was no coral but lots of fish hiding amougst the sticks.

Then we went for a cruise up along Fraser Is. I had a go at driving the boat. It was cool and not very hard ๐Ÿ™‚ Then I handed over to dad and he anchored the boat at a nice little spot on the shore to have lunch ๐Ÿ™‚

On the shore I went beach combing and found some nice shells ๐Ÿ™‚

Then we walked into the bushes a little and found a really nice waterhole and a rope swing that was so much fun!!

We all had a go on the rope swing, though it took a lot of convincing to get mum on there!

Then I have a go:

Then Dad:

And Mum:

We then had lunch and a swim in the waterhole (well Iluka and I did) and then we got back in the boat and went back to the mainland.

We all had a fun day out boating and are looking forward to our next trip in the boat ๐Ÿ™‚

So there it is, ย my two awesome weekends post, I hope you enjoyed reading about all of it ๐Ÿ™‚
