Sleeping on It

Apparently Connor - or both of us - just needed to sleep on Thursday's lesson.

Software update killed my phone's camera.  Anyway, Connor's all "Ladies, please, I just needed some sleep."

I apologized to the trailer-in clinic riders who must have heard me yell "HOLY SHIT!" from across the road when I got the coolest canter transition ever by moving my inside hip forward a millimeter while in a "collected" (I know we're not to true collection yet) sitting trot.  Like, seriously, how did he feel that?!  I did it a few more times to make sure I wasn't dreaming.  I've never ridden a canter pirouette, but I felt like he could have stepped into one with a canter that put-together.  The first stride was almost in-place, and then he stepped off into a dreamy, lofty canter.

The trot transitions were more of the same.  He never rushed off a single time.  And I rode without stirrups again.  It was just shocking to get that good of a ride without my trainer.  I think we're on to something.

Enjoying the brief period of time in which his drylot isn't so dry.  Eat your heart out, pony.

  1. One of those moments where you wish the trainer would have been there to see it but you are so excited to get there on your own, right?! Awesome :)
