Flying change! Woohoo!

This is a huge brag on my girl.

She was excellent today. Accepted contact (which some of you may have seen my post where we were having issues), and her gaits were 10x smoother. Hind end was working, working, working.

I decided to canter some figure 8s with her, changing lead through the trot. Just before I was going to take her down to trot and switch leads, she offered a flying change on her own! I was absolutely thrilled.

I'm just so excited to see how far we go in the next few years...I have a great feeling about her. It's amazing to me how I can sit here and not think of one single thing I dislike about her. I always accepted the fact that no horse is 100% perfect, and if you have something that's mostly what you want, that's good...but honestly? Everything about us as a pair just clicks so wonderful. And yes, I have seen her not so nice days - and I still say this.

Congratulations! Sounds like you're just tickled with your mare, and what a wonderful feeling. The not so great days, will happen for us all, but rejoice in the good days.
