Friday night's lesson was on Harley. This was a "work on me" lesson. I haven't ridden him in a while, so I didn't really mind. It's challenging to try to get him trotting square and flat walking. He used to weave along the rail, but I can make him walk a straight line now. Finally, after over a year!
M had me drop my stirrups at a sitting trot, and I didn't have my usual difficulty staying firmly in the saddle. I was able to keep his speed consistent, and we even trotted figure 8's and circles, though they were rather misshapen.
I talked to M about picking up another lesson during the week, and she suggested that I come out and ride one of the lesson horses and just get more time in the saddle. She said I could work on the same things that we covered in the lesson, and also transitions, sitting back in the saddle, whatever. I think I'll talk to her about it again on Wednesday, pick a day, and go from there. With the weather getting warmer, I want to ride more!
