So I forgot to update.. but my lesson the past Sunday was great. I am definitely a more timid rider when I am on other people's horses and when random people decide to watch.
But I did manage to canter on my own after being put onto the lungeline. I was really unclear on my canter aid and so now I have a MUCH better idea of where my leg should be and what my knee SHOULDN'T be doing.
I have another lesson on the 21st :) Skipping weekends as my parents don't appreciate me driving 4 hours round-trip to go to an hour lesson. They're supportive of my "every other week" plan though :)
By then, my horse Sky, will be in Louisiana and we'll have to figure out which farriers and vets to try out.
He has all the things he'll need for the hot humid weather! Praying he holds his weight during and after the trip..
