So, my riding instructor is very knowledgable and a very good coach, but she's also really tough on me. She's not the warm n fuzzy type at all. Anywho, I had my lesson today, and she actually said we have come a long way, that she sees so much potential in us, and that "You are going to be surprised at what a nice horse you have this spring."
Hence, I am feeling pretty awesome. I have only had Zip for a little over a year now, and boy oh boy, have we done a lot. We are now working on leg yields and haunches out, both huge steps from where we were two summers ago- not even trotting on the rail. XD
I love my wonder horse. He gave me the best Christmas present ever today.
