I have decided to write out a little schedule for me and Sweetie, the mare I lease:
Obviously game reins were not the best choice for that ride xD
I'm all hunched over and weird looking.
She is a little stubborn after not being ridden in 2 years but we are making good progress. I think we made the most 2 days ago when I went out to see her. She let me catch her for the first time and then she let me put her bridle on (it took a while though xD)
I don't expect anyone to read this but if you do than cookies to you...
Spa day (bath & grooming) plus bareback riding
Canter if she is not too lazy
Work on stopping and backing
Sweetie is in her early 20's, skinny and a bit out of shape so I'm trying to take it easy on her and just ride for short amounts of time and give her plenty of rest. We should be able to canter soon I hope.
