    Thank you so much :) both me and my mare have progressed tons this year, both western and english.
    It just takes her a few minutes to settle down, and I guess im the same! But im super glad we are both on the same page finally.

    Im over the moon that me and squiggy are finally clicking every ride

    Oops! Squiggy is a SHE. Give my apologies to the lovely lady. No wonder she has some sass and tells you just what she thinks.

    My first riding instructor (ex-cavalry all the way) once told me that the best instructor is your horse. There is no more honest critic of your riding on the planet. The feedback is fast and at times merciless. Listen to it. When you watch your videos, be sure to watch Squiggy's responses as well as your riding. You will learn so much.

    I love Squiggy. With a name like that, who wouldn't.

    As for the vid, I don't have much to add. I only wish Squiggypants would give you a bit more "umph" to her movement. She looks like she is offering the rock bottom minimum to escape a spanking.

    I didnt want to drive her too much, im content with her just plodding along for now, at least she was chill and behaving alright. I also think her movement feels bigger than it actually is for some reason.

    Probably because she isn't a flat mover. She has a bit of bounce though not as lofty as a TB.

    I think you both are doing great :)

    Thank you Sky :) I can't believe how fartin' BIG Squiggy has gotten. Like, even just her chest. It's GI-FREAKING-NORMOUS in comparison to last year. She's so thick and muscular, she looks like she could be a stallion! Some of her muscles honestly rival a lot of jacked performance stallions I see.

    I love my grade horse I got for free. Even though she broke my arm when I was breaking her :)

    Sorry I cut my head off :(
    I notice my heel coming up a bit, I think it's because I wanted some more softness and bend and was giving her more inside leg than usual.
