Warm Day;; Molly Update #2

She's been an angel the last few rides! She's really starting to get collection (softening at the poll), and her trot is the perfect medium. Not too fast, not too slow. (: Only been broke since July 2011 and is already cantering pretty well, and listening to all my aids! I'm a proud mommy. Lol. For the people that don't know I rescued Molly September 2011 from a bad situation where she was only owned for two months by a woman and lost about 250lbs. I bought/rescued her and put many hours into getting her to trust me on the ground, and improving ground work skills. After a few months I got on her back and realized how badly she'd been started under saddle, and how little she actually knew. I've done all her training by myself, with no help from anyone. (:

I need to record my instructor saying "shoulders back; back straight!" & listen to it on my iPod while I'm riding so I don't huddle forward so much. Lol. Also I know my stirrups are too short; I've been working on strengthening my legs & just forgot to lower them. (: Also don't mind her mane, she's in that awkward Mohawk stage where its about to fall over, it just hasn't happened yet.

Thanks(: They probably are. Lol. It was my first time wrapping polos by myself, but they stayed on the entire ride so I'm pretty proud of myself. A family friend that used to work at a track showed me how, I just need more experience.

Yea I'm no good at wrapping so I don't even try hah. They look good just a couple things aren't right.. there should be a v in the front and should wrap under the 'bulb' having a major brain dead moment on the right term haha.

It looks good for a start just make sure you get under there :] If you need a refresher there are tons of videos on youtube that show you exactly what Im talking about in case my rambling doesn't make sense haha.
