This may sound minuscule to most, but I achieved a huge milestone in my riding yesterday- I CANTERED!!
It's been 2 years since i've cantered after a few bad experiences. The last one resulting in me being thrown and seeing a chiropractor. I tried on a lunge line about a year ago and ended up hanging off the mare's neck, laughing hysterically. I'm just been too scared.
My fiance came out to capture some shots of Aidan and I and refused to take more pictures until after I tried cantering. He pushed me and as nervous as I was, I knew Aidan has a nice smooth canter.
Here's our ride!
I think that was the push I needed to at least get a few strides in every ride.
