Despite the recent rain, I cow-girled up and rode.
I only had a half day at school today due to block exams. When I got home I let him out to graze.
He was really well behaved. Walk, trot, canter and stopping was really good. Went to take him out around the block and that turned into a 15 minute lesson that we do not ignore me, we turn at the speed I want and we do not buck. Fun! Nice refresher for my seat. But my tailbone hurts again because of riding. Oh the things we put up with.
My sister raced us around the dam. And I must admit, she pretty much won. My horse is slower than a human *facepalm* He has reasons, but still.
There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky
