I just have a lot of working out to do.. I was slacking off for so long that it'll take ages to get back to where I was. Oh well, so happy to be around a horse today!

So I've been continously riding each week and now I am cantering happily all on my own :) I got my first pair of tall boot which I love, and I'm hoping to get pictures/video soon!!! I have so much confidence.. Sky is doing well also.

:)

I've hurt my leg mysteriously so no riding lesson this weekend. :( Sad me. Still working on getting video/pics.

Sky has taken a leap in a surprising direction. He decided to free lunge himself over a small (to him) jump. He actually tucked his knees up and stretched his neck out and everything. He hasn't had any jumping training/experience so it's very surprising!

Hi everyone!

This past Sunday (which was the 15th for me) I had my first ever stirrupless lesson. I did walk, trot (woo!) and CANTER!!! :) It was a lot of hard work but I did it!! :)

No riding lessons until Feb since I'll be on holiday to go home and visit my horse <33 I'll also be swinging through Hawaii so may ride there :)

I'm so proud of my progress though!!

Sky is about to go into training. He passed his eval with flying colours :) and she's excited to work with him.

Woohoo, seeing Sky soon! I miss Brock so much, although he's been a bad boy, but I wish I could see him again soon Missing horses is harder than missing people in a way, they're so dependent on you for their wellbeing you're always worrying that they're not being cared for as well as they should be, even if you know they're in good hands.
