    You are riding a million times better. NOW you look like you're riding Dressage :) Lovely lower leg, knees not gripping anymore, elbows bend, hands soft and giving. I love it!

    Its hard to tell a huge amount just from those couple of pictures, only one is really clear of your horse, but he looks so much more engaged, there is a connection from the hind legs to your hand now, and the hind legs are swinging through much more freely. He'll start building up his back now, if he keeps working in this frame you'll see that he'll bulk up behind the saddle where there is currently a dip.

    Keep up the good work!

    Wow! You guys are really looking good! The only thing I notice is that although your upper body is looking better, your shoulders are still a bit rounded, and your upper body still looks just a bit forward.... I know you were in an accident and are still recovering and that you're working on it, but one of our instructors uses the phrase 'tata's to the moon!' to remind the riders to open the chest and get the shoulders back. So its become kind of a mantra around here.... I know that for myself, even without any injury, it can cause some cramping in my upper back, so I work on it for short periods of time. Just thought the phrase might help you to remember to focus on it for periods of time in a way that doesn't stress you out! ;)

    Haha! I love that!
    I'm sitting here in a bit of pain tonight for sure!
    My back is not happy from two hard days of riding and then very little moving around now after....really seized up, felt better today and now just extremely tender to even sit in the car and on the couch. Not looking forward to the 14 hour flight I have in 3 days....makes me wanna cry right now really lol

    So it's 14 hours huh? I was just sitting here doing the math on that one when you said Europe and your location says Seattle. Is it non-stop or are you stopping off in our lovely New York City?

    I wish it was only 14 hours to Europe from me in Southern Australian!! Try 24 hours :(

    Are you flying Frankfurt to San Fransisco? What airline? I went to Romania 6 years ago with a 1 yr old and a 3 year old, and although the flight was long, it wasn't as bad as I had imagined. I flew Lufthansa, and the stewards/stewardesses were just AWESOME! Total trip time going was 22 hrs, and coming home, it was 24, but it seemed much shorter...

    Isn't it Seattle to London to Frankfort? Over the north pole?
