Back in the Saddle

Spring Show - Share on Ovi

A week long break from riding apparently did me some good, though it seemed a little torturous at the time.  I headed to the barn with a great deal of anticipation, and even the awful traffic failed to change my mood.  It was a little cooler, which was good as I'm not yet ready for temps in the 80s or 90s.  I think it's going to be another hot summer.

I rode Classi, and really concentrated on nice transitions.  More importantly, I forced myself to sit up straight.  I have a bad habit of slouching on her, leaning forward and looking sloppy.  After looking at pictures from the horse show, I realized that this an area that I need to spend a lot of effort improving.   The lesson was all about walk/trot/canter, and M said that I was riding much better.   

Tonight's lesson will be taught by A, because M is going to be judging a horse show.  I haven't seen her in two weeks, so I'm looking forward to it.
