Ugh, Indie had been inside since last night.. so her legs were stocked up.
They were fine after I rode though.
Quick summary of tonight:
Lots and lots of work, Indie sweated up a storm by the end of it. I was actually hosing her off and getting the heat out of her legs when lightening started flashing.. it still is, and while in the shower after I got home, it rumbled so I had to hop out.
We did lots of trot and canter work. Indie was actually rounding up and stretching out today! Although lately, she seems to be less sensitive to leg.
We also worked on yielding the haunches and she kept getting it confused with a sidepass so she'd try stepping sideways. I'm going to try to be much more clear from now on with my signals.
I go back tomorrow night so hopefully we'll have improvement! And hopefully
the farrier comes and does her feet soon... he was supposed to on the weekend but something came up.
So, even though Indie's legs sometimes stress me out.. I love her dearly and hope we have many years of good riding left!
