Yup..I have become one of those members so, the day before (last Sunday) I celebrated a little with my mare by accomplishing something I have wanted to do for awhile...a 6 mile loop trotting day. I made her walk some (had to ask) she and I really had fun . She was in rare form . Willing, forward, but not rushing and I found a nice groove, in the rhythm of her trotting. Right diagonal is easier, always has been, and left really took some flexibility to remain that way...it could be that she threw a shoe last week...but I rather think it would be that way anyway.
I lengthened my stirrups a notch, and off we flew, trotting corners, up hills and down hills. It is really awsome for balance -hers and mine.
Sometimes a simple two point worked better than posting. We had so much fun...started out with nice braids..all balled and short, exposing her beautiful neck...um, we trotted most of them loose!
Thanks Wa mare, your rock!
6 miles in 57 minutes...
