Jumping ahead just a little bit. It's funny how clearly our horses tell us how they are feeling about things with their ears. In the first picture you've jumped ahead just a weeee bit, but your eyes are up, your leg is solid, back is flat, and your release is polite. Your pony's ears are forward and keen to the whole thing. Then look at your second picture. You lost your iron, lost your leg, laid on his neck, and put too much weight way over his shoulder. His ears are very telling to how he's feeling about your position in that moment. I think it's great though. You're an incredible little rider.
Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.
