We're Adavanced!

Hey!

So I have some very very exciting news for you all! As some of you know, I've put my head down and really started working on improving Chinga and I's riding! We've found that it has been improving rapidly! So on Friday afternoon I had a lesson with Aamelia, we worked on Chinga and I's form alot! I found that I really listened to her and that we had even more improvement! It was an excellent lesson and we even got to do some small jumps (obviously an improvement there!) . So now for my wonderful news, on Saturday we had a lesson with Sue my other trainer, he didn't really want to come onto the bit and had a high-ish head carriage. But apart from that we did REALLY well together, we've never really flowed well in our arena lessons, partly because of the other horses. But we actually flowed together, I was so proud of him! He actually wanted to flow with me and wanted to listen and learn! He even rode past the other horses, including Benson *My fave school horse, and Chinga's least fave*. So for that I was even more proud, we even got to canter, every other time in the ring he has been to stubbon for me to feel comfortable enough to canter on him. He put his ears back and tensed up to buck, but I made him do it! After that once he was wonderful to canter, listened for the air and responded excellenly! He was being that good horse that I had out in the paddock when no one was around. So at the end I asked Sue if I could show her our square halt, we use to be horrible at this. We almost got it, Sue said that we were doing excellently together and that she thought it was time for us to move up (We were intermediate but now we are Senior/Advanced) and do individual lessons in dressage and show jumping *Up until now its been general riding*. I was so excited because I love the instructor who I will be doing private lessons with, she takes my general riding group lesson when my other instructors sick. She is excellent, explains everything clearly, pushs you and shes also friendly and awsome!

Im going to miss my group lessons for sure! But I will have to pop in and ride with the girls every now and then! So whoever reads/comments thank you for listening to me gush over my oh-so-exciting news! I am just so happy. Also Sue said that we would be doing this but she thought it would take at least a year before we would be ready and it only took two months, it makes me proud and proves that if you do put your head down, work hard and push threw the good and bad times. Not only do you become a better rider but you achieve the best of things! So to all those who are trying to achieve something with their horse(s)/riding, don't give up. You will get there.

Sir Success. Eventer.

Congratulations and good for you! I absolutely love private lessons, they are the best and most benefitial. I wont sped my money on group lessons because you do not get what you need out of them - whereas private, you have the sole focus of your Coach on you.

I am excited for you!

Thank-you all! For my group lessons we had two instructors in the ring and would have four/five studants, so we still really did get alot from lessons. I will ask mum to try and video my first private lesson (If I get in, that I'm sure we will ). I will let you guys know as soon as I find out Tuesday afternoon.
