lovely work

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!).

  1. Some is still better than none, right? I need to go toss Doodle up on one of my horses soon. Maybe today.

      Go for it!
      Progress is inchworming along but it’s the little bits that will add up to great stuff. I can’t imagine where she will be one year from now!
