Sorry to hear about your camera AK. That really sticks.
I hope you'll be able to burn the DVD tonight.
I rode Vega again today. She did pretty good. Nothing like last time, but brining her to arena was a chore all in itself. She kept rearing and bucking and refused to walk. She just had to do her prancing (maybe she was showing off to the boys, I don't know.
I have a feeling she gets like that because a. It's getting warm out, and b. She has no room to run and she just wants to. I think i'll lunge her from now on. A little maybe like 10 min warm up and then ride. We'll see how it goes.
And I know why I was so against lunging. People there don't ask the horse to do anything when they are lunging it. They just make them canter. One mom told me that her daughter has to lunge her horse for 45 min before each lesson. I thought that was a bit extreme. And another person that was lunging, the horse was sort of out of control (dragged the person around a little bit, but she stayed on her feet) and there was no "easy" or even a break in the gait, they kept the horse cantering. So I guess being around that turned me off from lunging.
I also took a video. It didn't capture the whole thing, I don't know why. And for parts I am off screen, but i'll post it if people want to see it. I'm still nervous tho. My seat looks horrible, well my legs really. I cannot get them to stay back, they keep coming forward. Maybe I should tie my stirrups or something to train my leg. I'm not really sure what to do. Any help would be nice
