    Those horses!

    Anyway, I had another lesson this past Saturday and it was a blast!!! I had Mercedes again and I must have caught her on a good day. She was a doll! Also, my instructor watched the whole time and figured out what I was doing wrong. I was squeezing with my thighs and ankles alright, but my feet were just kind of dangling. I am supposed to dig my heels into the horse. Worked on Mercedes like a charm. I just hope it was not a fluke.
