So, I spent all day grooming and then fixing fences. I only just got up. I guess the few weeks of sleeping after midnight and then getting up early again has finally caught up to me. On the bright side, the weather has been fantastic! Awesome riding weather.
I had a lovely riding lesson today! The lesson horse has a very rough canter and that causes me some trouble, as well as, my left shoulder likes to drop and my head leans that way (going either direction, it's always the left side that drops). I was finally getting the canter down and getting the mare to properly shape into a circle. She is out of shape and a bit lazy because she's only been ridden twice this spring.
My instructor took me out to her cross country course (just building it) after the lesson. She had me ride over a log just for a trot over. The mare kept stopping and walking over it, so my instructor told me to give her a good squeeze right as I came up to the log, so then the mare just jumped it instead of trotting over it. LOL! I was riding western and not in the proper position so I lost a stirrup. Gave my instructor a good laugh.
Then we went out and looked at her three foals! I want! I want! Andalusian crosses! They are so cute!
Hoping to get in one last lesson before I go out to BC. I have a million and two things to do before I leave! Slowly it all comes together.
