Z gave me some really lovely lunge work. Very relaxed and moving freely. Added Walk-Trot-Walk transitions as the goal is to keep relaxation and train it on the lunge and then move it to under saddle work. I was just so pleased with her work.
Today was the first day I’ve ridden without someone close by. I was able to get the Western saddle on, despite my injured arm. I just need to be careful and Z has to be patient (which she is).
This riding isn’t much. It’s about getting comfortable with her and mostly walk work. It certainly nothing to get excited about except that I am inching my way through and developing confidence to do more.
At least it was only in the mid-90’s today and a good breeze blew up when I finished (of course!).
