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.
