June 10

lesson went so well! My flatwork goal for the lesson was to work on bending, and my jumping goal was to keep my heels down. I achieved both!

Trotting to the right, I cou
ldn't get Dakota to bend. He decided it would be much more fun to run around with his nose out the whole time!

So then we wa
lked, and I decided to try bending again just at the walk. He responded really well, and seemed to really understand what I wanted! So then when we trotted left, I could get him to bend without too much trouble! I rewarded him every time he bended with a huge pat.

Perfect bend! --

Some 2-point...

Then we trotted with no stirrups. We were fine at the sitting trot, but then we had to post, and I was so tired from a
ll the bending that my legs were like noodles!

After that, we cantered. We started out with no stirrups and I thought I was going to fa
ll off because he kept trotting really fast instead of cantering. -_- That's why my spurs are kinda digging into him. But I finally got him to go. XD

Then we were a
llowed to pick our stirrups up while we were cantering so that was good.

Cantering the other way:

Right before he bucked --

Then we jumped! I was really happy with how we did -- usually when we have a good day on the flat, we do well in jumping too.

We got some bad distances...

lol at the horse on the side!)

Some "day
light" moments...

And some jumping ahead...

But overa
ll, it was a very successful lesson!
