Ok! I forgot to write yesterday, so a double dose!
Yesterday (April 29)
I rode Grace for the first time in a few days. I thought she might be a bit insane, and since it was a Sunday (like the day I got bucked off), and I was wearing new boots (yeah, I am that superstitious...)SO...I lunged her. She was really calm, so I only did about 5 minutes on each side. Then, I got on and warmed up, did some leg-yields and free walks. Then I trotted...I think we trotted for about 30 minutes straight, just working on all sorts of stuff; bending, circles, leg-yields, rein-less, etc. She was really awesome. One of our best rides in a while.
Today (April 30)
Didin't lunge today, just hopped on! Her flat was a little...tense and unresponsive at first. We worked through it, and had some really nice moments. We jumped, too. We started out a little launchy and fast, but I got her back and I realised that I wasn't taking her to the base of the jump. I was letting her just do what she wanted. Not good with a horse like her. My mom got some video, so I will be getting that onto YouTube and post it here!
I was a dreamer
Before you went and let me down.
