I got my DIAGONALS today.
I thought I should maybe put Peanut on a little exercise plan, she's getting those nice fat pockets on her shoulders (ICK!) So I went out into my arena-with-no-fence to just do some trotting and loping with her in the soft dirt.
Well, while doing a circle, I was like, "Hm. I wonder what diagonal I'm on..." I looked down and was on the wrong one! Eeeek! So, I spent 2 minutes trying to get on the right one, with no luck.
So, I shrugged and moved on to some figure 8's. I was determined to be on the right diagonal, well well well! It clicked!
When I was in the centre of my figure 8, I'd sit down for two steps and rise with the second (I was counting out loud) and looked down to find myself on the right diagonal!! EEEEEEK! I think Peanut was mad at me cause I was doing so many figure 8's and yelling "YAY!" everytime I found myself on the right diagonal! I even did big serpentines and got my diagonals!!!!
I'm sorry... I just had to get that out.
