Talking Hard work really does pay off

this is a thread to celebrate because I'm happy :)

So I posted a while ago that I could not get my horse to canter on flat ground to save my life. Well, we have been doing a LOT of hill work to help her balance, both lunging and with me on her. Anywho, on Sunday I finally decided maybe we can try again. So we went to a spot in the field that was relatively flat (had an incline that was basically non-existant), and after some prodding, she cantered for me! Granted it was only for about 15-18 yards, but it's still our big accomplishment for the week

And the moral of the story is...
If you work at something, practice hard, no matter how bad or impossible the task was to begin with, good ol elbow grease always pays off <3
