It's finally sinking in!!!!

I really think that Fleck and I are getting it!!! We have had yet another really good ride! I feel like I'm starting to understand and get things and can adjust them quicker and I am starting to anticipate and do things almost as Cindy and/or Beth is saying them.

We had a great lesson today with Cindy. We started with our stretchy walk and trot and then went right to work. The trot was much better from the get go. I just need to remember to really balance and supple him with that outside rein and inside leg. I was able to get a bigger trot without speed. Yay!! And we had a great canter too. He was much bouncier! Our canter lengthens to working canter was even smoother. We didn't quite maintain the jump but it was getting close. We finished the lesson with a really lovely half pass to the left, our hard side!!! 

So exciting!!!! I hate that he's about to get three weeks off because I feel like we're both really clicking and getting it now! I hate to lose the momentum. But I know that he needs some down time and it'll help him. And hopefully I won't forget everything. :)

I so wish I had pictures or video today but he felt so good!


  1. Woo Hoo! It will be 3 weeks of time to think about all the great things!

  2. Hey Holly! I nominated you for a Liebster Blog Award:

  3. Ha, I was feeling all virtuous about nominating you, but I see I've been beaten to the punch!
