So...it's been a while. I hardly get to ride since December, since it's been so cold. Lessons this week went better than the have in a while- Rainy actually leg yielded (correct word? probably not...), and she did fine even when Honor was flipping a wingnut. I was proud of her. And proud of Megan. This girl is the greatest girl to be around. Even though Honor's stupidness has shaken her confidence to the core, she always bounces back. And I know she will this time too. She deserves a good horse, not one that's constantly acting up and scaring her. And what's worse is that she was scared of falling off before the lesson even started, and then he was a total dork and Laura had to ride. I hope he stops. I guess they're slowly taking him off Senior feed (probably a good idea, he's got the weight back, and now it seems like it's just making him hot), and they changed his bridle around too. I hope it helps.
As far as Rainy goes, however, nothing progressing or regressing. I just wish we had something firm to work on- other than slowing down and headset, we're just riding to excersize, it feels like. I'm getting to the point where I'd love to be out on trails, but it's barely warm enough to walk around in the indoor arena, let alone ride in the snow and ice. Sigh. Well, I guess my rant is over.
Until next time,
Rainy and Shelby
