Oh my Golly wow...went out to do some drills in the tree farm a couple days ago, was a perfectly calm day. Which lent itself to a perfectly calm mare. It was truly amazing and I was in Awe with how responsive and light she was...she WAS MY LOVELY DRESSAGE HORSE!!! Everything was as it should be...no over reaction to aides...canter departs with out a fuss(wrong leads though, at first) very rhythmic gaits. My simple breath allowed me to half halt and also transition to the next. She was just the BEST! I could NOT believe how silent it all happened...the air was so still.
There was only One Problem..and maybe it helped us out , I am thinkking now...the TREES HAVE GROWN so large..that I have to not move my legs to fit into the rows! If I move too much..my toes catch and rub.
It is not long now folks....they are trimming them into the perfect Christmas trees...soon, I know, they will be cut down. In fact...sorry news to tell soon about the forests too.
LOOK below at the differance...MARCH09/NOVEMBER09
Be well all- for the weekend is coming!!! Yea. Riding the arena tomorrow and then---a clinic on Sunday!
