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.
