You could pretend it makes you think of the song "pretty fly for a white guy" .. that was at least from the 90s?

I had another great lesson today with my outside trainer.

The only thing I find is the most difficult learning from a Parelli trainer is that they are so specific in the techniques. Like when you do it after, it has to be bang on.

Because of this, some times Ive had difficulty comprehending instructions as its taken me a bit longer to learn and grasp on but once I do, its good as gold.

I dont know what it is, but I find my body language is more on edge when working with instructors when it comes to groundwork (its because I know I have a set of eyes on me that are analyzing me), but once Im on my own, Im almost like a completely different person. I felt this on Monday night when I brought my mare into the arena (just her and I) and I did some groundwork with her and I tell you, over the past few weeks, things (that havent before) have started to now feel natural to me. I think its my confidence. I have more confidence today than I did a month ago and I can feel it.

She told me again today that she truly believes I shouldnt be riding my mare on Friday because my mare is very green and green + green = black and blue. She just said that "shes not good enough on the ground"...."This is why Pat always says, before getting on a horse, that horse must have this, this, this checked off meaning they're solid on the ground"....."Your mare has some check marks, but not enough".

She said shes just looking out for my safety and I told her that I appreciate her looking out for me.

But I also told her, Im just going by my gut feeling. I told her that Im confident and I will be recording it and I will show it to her after. She said she cant wait to see it. I want nothing more than to prove her wrong that I am capable riding my mare.

When I have her watch my ride, I want her to say to herself "wow...Steven proved me wrong"...."I did not see this coming"....."he did quite good and had a good ride on his mare". I am motivated in making this happen. I love being challenged.

Hoofpic, I think you're more than ready for Fly! Just get on her & forget about being watched (I know how that feels, it does make a difference, but try to put it out of your head...just you, and your horse...just BE THERE).

Good thoughts sent to you for Friday!
