Another pleasant ride this morning. I'm really liking this mare and it feels pretty good to be in my english saddle.

Took it easy but did ask for a few things of her today. She wasn't a+ responsive about everything, but did do & understand all I asked. She has a sidepass but this is where she was a bit lazy (she's getting the out of shape old girl free pass for now), flying lead changes and we also did a little trotting diagonal lines from corner to corner in the indoor. I know there's a proper term for that, dressage people help me out here. Sitting her trot doing that she just exploded with movement, what a wonderful feeling! I'm pretty sure that not only will it tuck her belly but mine too

I think some dressage lessons may be in order for me. It's a very strange feeling to be on a horse that knows more than I do.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Oh, she also got a pedi. Big A+ there. She pretty much napped through her trim. Got a great report from the farrier. She has "very healthy, substantial feet."

Aha, found Missy's thread, Good.

Yeah right, I totally get the tree+jump+accident, I'm sure that's what happened.

She sounds just fantastic, can I come for some lessons, I want to ride her

PS, When I started riding Ace I kept pushing buttons I didn't know she had and getting all sorts of things, I wish she had come with a handbook, definitely knows more than I do

It was an accident, as my daughter used to say "I plomise"

Sure you can come ride her, you can teach me some dressage moves! Maybe you should head this way now and by the time you get home the madam may have decided to puuuuush!

Squeee!!! Love the both of you. She looks like an amazing mover and she carries her self so well, especially for being so out of shape. I adore that last picture .

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
