Finally Getting Back in the Swing
 
I have been going down to my friends place to ride her gelding as often as I can since the weather broke after winter. I have been making pretty good progress since I am mostly rebuilding myself since being out of the saddle for a few years. I am trying to get myself ready to start my filly either later this year or next spring, depending on how she grows.

Well, my last few rides have been so much better than before and today I was super proud of myself. I did a smooth walk to canter on a loose rein! I don't think I ever even accomplished that before my break from the saddle. In less than three months of riding, I have gone from a nervous wreck to be a solid, confident, proactive rider again. :D

I feel that with a little more endurance and strength, I will be ready to start that little girl of mine.
