    I did it!

    I cantered today! I was scared to death! My trainer said when ever I was ready I could try it, today, next week, it was my decision to make. So I went for it. The first time I asked him for it, I chickend out after the first few strides. Trotted another lap, then tried again. I grabbed the horn, but I kept going. Went around once, then let go of the horn. I was FLYING! I did 3 more laps & brought him in. I was shaking like a leaf, but I did it!!! My trainer was so proud of me. She said I was really getting into it & she loved the smile that was on my face.

    It was the perfect day, until I got home & tried to tell my Hubby. He just said "that's nice" & walked off. Him I want to strangle, my lesson horse, I want to go see again tomorrow!

    Congrats. I STILL feel that sense of accomplishment when I canter in the arena. Cantering is STILL the tiniest bit scary for me, so, when I do it and have a good time, it's thrilling.
