    I ride english
    Be prepared for this long post, hehe

    I had a miraculous ride today. My instructor moved stables after 10 years (for me 1 1/2 years) and boy was there a change. The horse I ride Louie, changed so much for the better. His diarrhea is gone after years of trying to get rid of it and it only took 5 days in a new stable to fix that, and his coat is so shiny and healthy looking, and he is no longer just a four legged thing in a stall, but a horse. To see him roll for the first time and be a horse was a beautiful sight, im off topic so back to the riding!

    I hopped on to Louie, and it felt like every other day, but then we trotted and my heels were glued in to place the right way and it felt fantastic. It feels so different when your riding correctly, and I didnt want to stop trotting! But of course Louie had to go and injure his stifle so we couldnt do too much, but I can't wait to ride him again, and get back to cantering! Today I didnt have to squeeze him to death to get him to get a forward walk, but rather I had to hold back myself because he would go trotting when I didnt want him to at the slightest squeeze. The riding felt effortless and right. I don't know why suddenly I can ride correctly, maybe the stretches, the new life in Louie, or whatever it is, I like it! And the owner is so nice, I love her!

    I am happy for you too. The new barn sounds great and it is always feels so good when you are able to do something you haven't been able to before.
