Talking Just wanted to share about a great lesson I had!

Hi guys!

I took a lesson today, and it was SO encouraging! I asked my trainer to put me on the lunge line so I could drop my stirrups/reins. I learned a lot! It was sorta a reality check for me - I realized I'm not as balanced as I thought, and my horse doesn't listen to my seat as well as he should.

After warming up on the line, we jumped and that went great, too! We raised the jumps and did lots of curvy courses, and were successful at many of the things we've been working at. We were straight to our jumps, got our distances, my position was a little better, and my horse got all his leads! I'm soooo happy!

At the end my trainer put me back on the lunge line so I could jump some without stirrups (that wasn't very pretty ), but we're going to keep working on it. I feel like this was a great way to improve and am excited to continue it! My horse was great today and I wasn't too bad myself
