My trainer is evil! :)
She makes me do things I am not comfortable doing, and she pushes me, all of which are great.
So a few lessons ago, she put me on a lunge line, even though I am an intermediate rider. And made me ride with no reins, arms out aeroplane style and with my eyes closed.
I trust more than anyone I know except for family, and yet I was tense and terrified. I guess I am more of a control freak than I will admit.
But it worked wonders, I was able to feel the effect my seat and balance had on my horse, I was able to say which leg was hitting the ground and when.
It truely was amazing, even though it was horrific, I was able to feel my horse when I cannot with my eyes open.
But as awesome as she is, she has an evil tendancy, of enjoying these moments! :)
