Wweeeee! What a fun lesson I had today!
Some background : I cantered for the first time last Wednesday. We didn't do much- I only went around the ring one or twice the first day (and uh, uh, most of that was just a really funky trot- I think I actually cantered for about 3 strides).
Today we did a bit more, and wow what a blast! I love my barn- its so laid back and the girls I do my group lessons with are adorable (11 years younger than me-I'm getting old!) and my lesson horse... I'm in love, even if her favorite speed is stop. Cantering was so much fun! I have plenty of work to do, but that is what the lessons are for.
And a quick parting question: I have the biggest issue with remembering to keep my weight in my feet and stirrups when cantering, and so my feet end up coming out of or going all over the place in the stirrups- any tips on how to remember to keep my feet and legs where they are supposed to be?
