Short ride on Zeus yesterday.

Only had 30 minutes to ride so I hopped on and w/t/c.
Pictures!

Note: Normally my stirrups are longer and my heels stay anchored. When my stirrups are longer my leg is more underneath me.
I also rode in a friend's boots as I forgot mine, they were terrible and a bit too small, so my equitation is a bit off.
:]


Jesse and Zu.


Horsey love.


Just walking around.


Letting him stretch.


Ha ha I was about to fix my stirrups, did two-point work so I put them up a hole or two.


Zuuuuuuuu.


Was cantering on a long-ish rein. Canter to trot, dumping on the forehand.
We need to work on it.


The sun came out for a moment!


More canter.


Canter.


More canter, and UGH, I'm leaning.


Asked him to check his stride and collect a bit, he wasn't appreciative.


His protests of my decision to go back to a trot. (He came back fine, just had to let me know that he wanted to keep cantering.)


Too close to Jesse, ha ha. My hands are a bit too low.


Itchy nose.


More in next post...

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it

My bud.


Didn't realize how on the forehand he was until I saw the pictures.
Now I know what to work on though! :]


Excuse my heel, he was NOT moving off of my inside leg, had to kick him off of it a few times to get him to stop leaning.



Same, but I think he's a bit less on the forehand here.


Flapping his lip. <3


Favorite, wish it weren't blurry.


Teeny xrail to get him to pay attention. Figure eighted over it a few times.
