Oh wow I have been radio silent!
I'm going to start with riding, since that's the most recent tangible thing.
Sunday was my lesson however my instructor has been so involved in showing her awesome horse that we had a slight miscommunication and she made other plans.
But it was ok, because her partner invited me on a beach ride.
It was one beautiful hour of miles and miles of stretched beach. The wind was roaring, the seagulls playing, the dogs running amuck having fun, locals fishing or out with their own dogs.. it was awesome!
The mare I rode was being very very good until it came time to go home. That mare.... wanted to GO. But if I didn't let her steam-roll trot home, she would suck back and buck. So instead of I put leg on but asked her to leg yield... one way then the next. The whole way back.
I'm not sure what I was doing wrong, because I have still so much to learn and hadn't ridden in over 2-3 weeks.. but she usually isn't like that.
She was soft as butter when leg yielding though... it was so lovely
Now.... Lovely Man.
Do you guys even want to know???
