Went to the barn (my mom came to watch me ride today) and there was no lessons but I was allowed to ride, since I lease.
I worked on flat work with him again. Same thing as last time- worked on getting him on the bit and collected. Skippy was amazing and did it pretty much the whole ride. My sitting trot is getting a lot better, as is my no stirrup work. The canter is coming along nicely as well but is not making as much progress as the sitting trot. Tried to get an extended trot out of him but failed. Maybe next time.
Also, had my fifth fall! That means I'm half way to becoming a real rider!
Okay, so I was out in the field. I was posting the trot with no stirrups and decided to go out farther in the field than I usually do. Birds nest close to there and don't like the horses around...so of course one flies out in front of Skippy. He more or less jumped to the side and before I could blink I was on the ground. The grass/ground was soft and I was fine. Skippy stood there and waited for me like a good horse. I walked back to the outdoor arena, got back on, and practiced more no stirrup work and canter work to make sure I wouldn't be nervous about doing that the next time I ride. Skippy was so cute, you could tell he was watching out for me and didn't want me to fly off him again lol.
I'm actually kind of relieved because I knew I was due for a fall soon.
So in conclusion, my cockiness was quickly nipped in the bud today and Skippy is the most awesome horse ever.
