I rode today and it was one of my best lessons, especially since my friend came to watch and film! I was really happy when I saw the videos because I've been working so hard on staying back and not jumping ahead and stuff... so I've come a long way.
As it says in the end of the video, I think this song really reflects how I feel about moving on from Ricky (the pony I rode for three years and had an amazing bond with) and sort of opening up to Dakota... I can still miss Ricky, but I can learn to love Dakota, too.
No critique for now, please. I'd like a few days to feel good about myself and my progress. Then I'll upload some plain clips with no effects and some still frames and post them in the critique section. :)
I'd also like to mention that this is the first song I've found that makes me think of Ricky that doesn't make me cry. It's kind of like a moving on song instead of a looking back / missing someone song. So it's kind of helping me understand things with Ricky and how it's okay to move on and learn to love a new horse without forgetting him.
