Just wanted to post some pictures of Holly and I today :) My friend was kind enough to take photo's during my lesson, so its a bit of a novelty to have photos of me riding! Holly is a 14hh QHxArab Mare who is green at the moment.. we are working on getting her into some sort of a frame (she's much better than she was, but still a bit all over the place!). She's a very funny mare too, so its hard to keep a straight face ;)
Please do not critic, my instructor and I both know my faults and what I need to work on, and Holly does not belong to me. I just wanted to brag about our progress today and show you all some pictures
We did a super nice 10m circle at the walk and a canter half 20m circle, which is alot to ask for Miss Holly :) I have big dreams for Holly but for now its baby steps. She also has an attention span of a 2yr old baby, so keeping her focused is a challenge in itself! lol.
Ok, here she is! All fury and grubby!
My face is horrible in this one, and my jacket makes me look like I have a santa claus tummy! haha
This is a bit blurry, but she was going well at that point. Dont mind my heel.. bad Becky!
And our canter.. nose in the air and me looking completely and utterly terrible BUT its a huge effort for Holly to canter any type of circle, so I was over the moon
It appears I'm leaning forward, but I am actually mid way doing a massively over exaggerated rocking motion to get her through it :)
So thanks for reading :) This post doesnt really have a point.. just wanted to share.
