So proud, just need to brag
My Lizzy has been put into training once a week. Its all I can afford right now. In just three weeks she has improved so much. After her lessons I go over what I need to work on with her and I've been able to work her 5-6 days a week. Her walk is much more relaxed and she is working from behind in the walk. We are still working on her trot but it has gotten so much more free and bouncy, not really sure how to describe it but I can sit the trot now without bouncing out of the saddle.

Next week's lesson I get to ride for part of it. I'm so excited how well she has been doing. Oh and I should mention she is getting her training in dressage.

Thank you. Yes it is. I wish I could have afforded training a year ago. Maybe next year we could even go to a schooling show.

I know the feeling, it's amazing. I had invited a more experienced friend to come over and help me out as I felt stuck in the training and there is incredible progress from yesterday to today. He understands what I am asking, he is stretching a little already, moving off my legs better, and it's a lot more pleasure to ride, and also satisfaction that things are happening..

Sometimes all we need is a little help and the world looks 10 times brighter :)

Yes getting help is the best thing I've done for both of us.

I was wondering where you were....but no news is good news, right?;-)
Good to hear you can finally take advantage of what you have right there:-)

Haha yes I've been so busy. With full time work, full time school and working Miss Lizzy 6 days a week, I haven't had much time for anything else.

I love how well her training is going. She is just a different horse in just a few weeks. And I love her movement now. She just floats and really moves freely.

Haha, congratulations! Isn't awesome when your horse is doing what you want?
