A Quick Update

Wednesday's group lesson was uneventful, except for the cantering portion.  Once again, my moody mare leapt into the canter and took off like a bat out of hell.  I think that she's getting mad at me because I am making her keep her head up, and after forty minutes of it, she's had enough.  I had her slowed down by the end of the first rail, and made her canter a couple of circles to get her settled down.  M said that I am finally learning to make her work for me.  Yay, great! 

Friday was a beautiful day!  Finally!  It was 50 degrees, just perfect for riding.  Too bad Blondie didn't cooperate.  At all.  Not her fault - she got her spring shots on Thursday, and her neck  (injection site) was sore.  Looked like she swallowed a broom.  After a few minutes fighting with her, M told me to just exercise her and we wouldn't count this as a lesson.  It just wasn't going to work.  I should have known something was up when she didn't try to bite me when I was getting her ready.  Just one half-hearted head bob in my direction when I was putting her saddle on.  Hopefully she is feeling better today.
