NEW Aria update!
I wanted to start a new thread on Aria, the green-ish horse I’m leasing.
I worked with a new trainer this past weekend, and made so much progress!!!!
This trainer is WAY better than the previous one I tried. I’m lunging Aria confidently now. Now I understand why I do things like back her up and doing circles... Unfortunatly, Aria is still stiff when it comes to trotting. So I’m working her at a walk when it’s just me and her. But I hope to see if maybe the vet can give us painkillers so I can have the craniosacral person work more deeply on Aria’s hips.
Some days her hips are fine, and others, she’s stiff. But she is becoming such a good girl.
She’s a bit “hot.” And also a bit naughty. But I’m getting more confident all the time. If I can get a good handle on her physical state, I really think I may someday ride her!
(Likely at a walk, since I, too, have back and hip problems. LOL)
Anyway, I’m just so excited to have broken through my issue with Aria turning in on me when lunging.
