We've Come So Far!!

I haven't been on the forum in a little while, but I wanted to share our progress since yesterday was three months since I bought Zee! He's now been out of retirement for a little over 4 months. I'm so proud of the progress he's making! And he still puts up with me as I try to improve...

Feel free to critique us as well. Enjoy!!!!!

August 26th... Our First Ride

October 16th... A week after we bought him

November 14th... About a week after we started taking him over some crossrails

December 11th... Jumping Lesson

December 12th... Psycho Clinic (sorry, this one is super long)

Wow. What a massive improvement in such a short time! Great job! How often are you taking lessons?

Thanks! Zee and I are both being taken out of retirement! I rode til I was about 20, but took 10 years off til last year when I started riding again. Zee hasn't been ridden much in the last 5-6 years, so we need a bit of practice to start getting the hang of things again. I take a 30 minute private lesson over fences once a week, and try to join a 1 hr group lesson on flatwork / dressage once a week. I'm just so happy with his progress. I know we both have a lot to improve on, but he's moving forward, starting to carry himself and balance better, and his stamina and flexibility have increased dramatically. I'm happy that my lower half is getting better! If I could sit up and turn my elbows in, I'd be happy!

Ahh you are very lucky to be able to take 2 lessons per week. I am only able to afford lessons once every other week. :/ Color me jealous!

I only take lessons once a week and I've been riding for seven years. We had a girl in the stables and she had this really horrible cheeky horse, but she took over three years to fix him up into acceptable, keep up the hard work!

Zee is certainly not a problem horse by any means. He's naturally lazy, and out of shape from being a pasture puff for the last few years. It's a fine line between pushing him too hard and pushing him enough to give him a good workout. His training is excellent, maybe a bit rusty, but he can certainly teach me a lot more than I could ever teach him!!
