Video will come eventually....we are not yet videogenic...lol.

However, today was good....she cantered 2-3 strides several times in the arena! Can't tell if she was anticipating the canter or being a brat when I would ask for the trot and she would instead do the hop like she was going to canter. We were both exhausted by the end of it all. I'm sure it was comical. But it was very successful.

I lunged her just on a lunge line in the arena with her tack on before riding just to remind her of the verbal cues. She was wonderfully smooth between transitions...so awesome.

She's getting eager to work that's why she's anticipating now. It's up to you now to dose the aids accordingly.
Nice feeling, isn't it?

Great progress
I'll forgive you the videos as it takes a really brave person to post anything of themselves riding. I don't know why but the moment someone aims a camera at me it all falls apart and I end up looking like a demented thing with arms and legs that all grow at the wrong angles

I tried to video my husband last night so he could see for himself what he was doing right and wrong and he threatened to throw the camera in the river - me with it I think if I'd argued!!!

Once I think that I'm not a complete failure with my riding I'd be glad to post some. In her past 'being ridden' video I used my daughter..lol.

However, I am feeling much more confident in my riding now, though it may never be perfect. I guess once I at least make it past the 'that poor horse' phase of riding skill, I will be fine with video.

I do plan on taking some more lessons. There are two more trainers at our ranch besides the one that I took my first four lessons from. I'm told they won't throw so much at me at once. I start working next week and want to get that routine going and paycheck. Plus one of them is out of town until mid June. So, that is the goal.

Just saying that I had successful first attempts is good for me.
