So tonight Eve and I worked on rythm using cavelletti and repitition :) She was going great by the end but the whole lesson she gave alot of effort other than one momentary tantrum and I wanted to share a proud moment caught on camera :)
Warming up - ignore my aweful hands
Working over the poles
Yay for better position!
LOVE this pic
Finishing up with our lesson
Good mare :)
Awesome ride today and I feel both of us did well and improved as we went!
Thanks, she's REALLY filled out this year! I'm ok with her being only 15.3hh if she's this thick! And yes I know, my coach scolded me as well for no helmet but we weren't jumping and I'm over 18 and understand the risks. Thank you for the concern though :) To be honest, I didn't have my helmet at the barn - I'm riding a very green 6 year old QH mare for a friend so I left my helmet at her barn so I'd have it when I rode her horse...thus why we didn't do any jumping today!
My wrists/hands have ALWAYS been my downfall! Everyone has strong points and weak points, goal is to recognize and fix them! But thank you - I think she's cute too! I actually forgot the BEST picture from the day!
