    Today's
    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!
