Well, I had my lesson today and I wish I had video but nobody was around to be able to take any. Worked on posting, steering and maintaining the trot all the way around the arena. I managed to stay in two-point at a walk twice around, and posted twice around without having to sit. Hook is starting to really respond to me a lot better. I think my signals are getting less confusing plus he has a bit more respect for me. We had a great day. At the end I spent some time walking without stirrups and also worked on trying to point my toes more forward. I think I have a separate thread question on that. We trotted over ground poles which gives me the biggest kick -- so much fun.
Cinder, I got a copy of the Complete Horse Riding Manual at the library today!
My instructor said a goal is to canter by Thanksgiving. I think I'm also adding a group lesson every 2-3 weeks when I can afford it because I must get more time in
