That's awesome! I told my friend looking after Sky I'm sure she'd be quick to make some friends!

And....

I am invited back for another lesson!!! I didn't screw up nearly as much as I had assumed. That being said, I am hoping to bring a tripod for our next lesson because I don't think my mom is willing to come out again due to distance lol.

But I'm so happy!!!!
Isn't it remarkable how we're our own worst critic? :)

July 5th

I had the most interesting dream last night. I dreamt that I was riding the mare I rode last time but I had no fear at all. We were in an indoor arena but it had random pieces of furniture in there that I kept having to dodge... along with my family walking around bicycles.

I remember asking him to leave because I felt unsafe riding in such an already cramped space. I did so nicely, but they complained about going and I received snappy responses.

Then my alarm went off so I jumped right out of it.

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..

Congratulations on the insightful lessons! Praying for a safe journey for Sky :)

July 17th

Lesson this weekend was cancelled due to my instructor being at a horse show both days. Had I known I would have taken a week day off as I really need horsey time!!

That aside, Sky moves in 2 days down South. My friend sent photos on FB of the new place and it looks really cool! I just hope that my friend and Sky are happy there :)
