Alright I'm gonna be real honest with you, this recap is for my... September 4th lesson? God I'm so behind. Anyway, my friend was in town so I dragged her along and actually have media! It was a really great lesson -- are you sensing a theme? There's a theme. I'm enjoying the shit out of my lessons. We're still chipping away at the individual pieces I need for 1st level, mainly lots of leg yielding. The leg yields, naturally, are improving the 20m/10m circles at both the trot and canter (well we're not cantering 10m circles obviously, but you know what I'm saying).
|My right shoulder would really like to be in the fetal position, at all times. Not helpful.
|Doing 10m circles in the middle of my leg yields - which was a super helpful exercise!
|I'm so clutchy with my hands, sigh. It's a work in progress. I sometimes still don't trust that she isn't going to zoom off. Not that clutching her face helps with that either, but good luck explaining that to my lizard brain.
|Some of these are probably repeats from last week but I DGAF I still love them lol.
|This will be my profile picture forever and ever. Or until I get a better moment lol. I am still in awe this is my horse!
|SO SWEATY. The only dry part of my shirt was over my sports bra, lol.
|Lessons are exhausting, clearly.
