Just have to share.
My BO/trainer put me on Reno today...for like three minutes of walking around in 20m and 10m circles and an attempt at five strides of trot...but I FINALLY got on my baby! His walk is sooooo comfy to ride
Then another girl got on him for his training/workout. He's coming along nicely. He had a bit of a freak out moment when they were trotting a 20m at the far side of the arena (maybe cause it was a little dark?). It was a little frightening to watch, but at the same time I was like "Dude...your flipout is a gorgeous lateral trot/canter?" The rider stopped him quickly with a one rein stop and he stood compliantly for a few seconds before being ridden on the far side again with no problem (at a walk anyway).
Only downside is my family and special guy friend weren't able to make it to see this milestone.
