Well, it's been a really eventful week for me and my ponies! Key and I were offered sponsorship from an equine massage therapist, so that is really exciting, but puts a bit of added pressure on us to do well. We are working on our walk pirouettes and half pass, plus I need to work on relaxing in sitting trot so that we can get our medium and extended trot properly. At the moment, my back tenses and my shoulder blades come up around my ears and it all goes to pot. But I will get there, I just need to strengthen my core and adjust my position slightly and it will be all good. :)
Rhett has taken a bit of a backwards step as his saddle isn't fitting properly at the moment, which is tipping me back and putting pressure on his already weak stifles, so we are back to fitness work and pole work in had until the saddle fitter can come out. I have knocked 30kgs off of him though, which will help with the stifles. Only about 50kg more to go and I will be happy!
