I would love to ride Selena!....maybe you can ride Gidget and help her on some things?
She did SO GOOD last night when I was practicing leaning forward and up in my stirrups. My reins were up on her neck and I kept whipping and kicking when we would run but around the turns I sat down...I practiced over and over and ran her for most of the part. Her turns were sooooo smooth! I don't have a big enough arena to practice the pattern so I just practice running around a cone in both directions. If she would slow down I would push her untill I was ready for her to slow down. AND! She wasn't upset when I was kicking...I think it's because the bumper spurs cover more area than the classic spur so not a huge jab in the rib.
I don't have the chance to ride tonight as it's getting late and looks like rain....I ended up reorganizing our bedroom and it took for ever!......I will see about breezing her in the fairgrounds arena :)
