Riding in the Winter pays off
Snow has gone off the mountain for over a week now, hot weather is here and I had my first lesson of the season. My horse remembered the drill, I hook up the trailer, he runs around the paddock and hides in the corner until it's inevitable we're going no matter what. My coach was impressed that I worked on some exercises throughout the winter and perfected them, she was not impressed however, that my husband didn't come with his horse (he went riding his Harley through the canyon instead). She was quite easy on me, we just worked on leveling out transitions, no 2 point, no stirrupless work, she says she can tell I have been doing that at home, my seat is deep, good leg position, no need for it during a lesson (ok I am an apple polisher, I practise my butt off doing that grunt riding at home). She even brushed my horse while I put away my tack, yup, I am the favorite one now! Hubby is coming with me on Wednesday for the next lesson, I have a sneaking suspicion someone will be dropping his irons and sweating, muahahaha!!! Anyone else starting lessons again after the winter? Let's hear about it!
