Just a little update ...... stop reading now if you're bored of them!
I'm smiling like a loon today
Okay, so it's sunny and nearly the weekend, but that's not the only reason!
I was brave and went back in the arena yesterday. I've wimped out a bit since Megan's owner gave me a lesson. I had no problems that day, but my fear kept muttering things about the "scary" corner and Megan running off with me.
I had to be brave though because I didn't have long to ride, so the arena it was. Well ... fairly early on she decided canter was more fun than trot, and you know what? I just went with it, popped her onto a 20m circle and practiced getting my seat correct. I was actually *whispers
* enjoying it
And THEN..... I went to the other rein, and actually asked for canter for the first time ever! And we did a few nice 20m circles on that rein too.
Plus she tried it on in the "scary" corner, but I stopped her spooking or speeding up and made her do some circles over there too
How brave am I?
See. I CAN do it.
