Soo I ended up going down yesterday, got there late so I got to ride with the lights :p I definitely took a liking to Go rather than Lilly.
Lilly's trot is odd. It was hard to post to, and the girl's saddle tipped me forward...plus new tall boots=disaster. So my feet were constantly going through the stirrups and I was very uncomfortable.
Next week when I go down again, I'll definitely be using my paddock boots and half chaps. Oh and I meant to bring my saddle but left the barn without it.... D:<
Because she's still a little green from the track, she didn't really understand the canter. She would gallop the first 2 strides, then go into this nice canter, it would pop me up. So not liking that...the girl said they're building a new ring with jumps in it so I can jump her next time. The ring also had big puddles, so I had about 1/2 a ring to work with...and the puddles were scatter T_T
I'm pretty much in love with Go haha. I learned that video doesn't do any justice. I didn't try to put her in any kind of headset, and she moved so well. (She took videos of me riding both mares) I popped her over a 1' crossrail and I like her jump. She wasn't trying to she just kinda cantered over it, so I couldn't judge her knees. Go is more forward with her canter, and has a very comfortable trot. She is the kind of horse I can learn a lot and I feel she would be very good for me. At the end I did try to just set her up, and she just dropped her head in a nice headset, not that weird tucked one.
I might upload the videos on Youtube, but I'm not sure. The videos with Lilly are way too dark, and with Go, I don't look that good....curse you new tall boots!!!
