Good job with her MM, your "trainer" though she is young seems to know what she is doing, she has GREAT form in all those picks, totally relaxed especially in the "ZOMFG, RUN AWAY" pic lol, if she were located in quebec or near the ontario boarder (im 20 min from the border lol) I would definetly use her to train mine for dressage.

She's amazing, she's got a great feel and love for horses, a hugely forgiving rider (her mount had an "equine special moment" at their first show, and she blamed it entirely on herself, laughing the entire time). She stands around and chats, and is really just such a friendly cheerful person.

One pic of when I hopped on Jynx today, just an example of how fast she learns things - one ride, and she's already like "Oh I know what you want!"

I know the saddle is to small, but it's what fits Jynx right now so I'm buying it for Kali to ride in, and working my ass off to lose weight! I also have an all purpose that fits us both if all else fails.

I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.

She looks so much more settled and relaxed. Can't wait to see how she progresses

Great pictures. Looking forwards to seeing more progress pictures. It really comes to show that any horse can really look great with good training. Very excited to see how she turns out, she's a really gorgeous horse. Please keep us posted.

Glad you are having fun. Jynx looks like she relaxed a bit in the last picts. I don't ride English so I'm no expert.
We have a saying, "all you need to know to be a trainer is more than the person (or horse) you are training".
Just make sure she is teaching you as well as the horse. I know a lot of folks will train the horse, and not the rider. When the rider gets on they have no idea how to ask the horse how to do what they just paid money for it to learn.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
