YAY! I'm happy! xD
 
I made real progress with Cessie today.
She used to be scared of cantering bareback, but today I taught her that it is fun.
She used to freak and flick her ears wildly and become all tense when asked to canter bareback.
Today I was riding bareback after lunging her and because she usually likes to canter up this hill with a saddle on I decided to try to get her to canter up it. First time she was hesitant and just did an extened trot. Next time she put in a few strides of canter at the end towards the top. I tried a few more times untill she went straight off my leg into the canter and boy did she love it. I then went for a ride up the road which has big verges which I did more cantering on. She now offically loves cantering bareback. I feel so fufilled. Tomorrow im going to do more canter bareback work and I might throw in a few jumps in preperation for the show on sunday which has a bareback jumping class, which hopefully I'll have more of a chance in now she canters bareback.

Rode bareback again today
and after warming up we popped a few jumps, first at trot and then at canter. the first two times at canter she got the striding slightly wrong, but once she got used to the idea of cantering over the jumps bareback she got the striding right each time afterwards.
