A new step forward

September 5th, 2009 by Hikage

Despite being sick, mom had me go out to the barn today. She told me to lunge him while she cleaned his pen. Well, being sick, I felt that going around in circles wouldn’t work well with me. So instead I saddled up, and road him. He did very well, in fact we trotted some for the first time (at least for me)! Now I know you don’t post when riding western, but I had to post…because I could feel how ready he was to go into a canter. I didn’t want a canter because I’m still not sure how much control I have over him. So I posted in the western saddle to keep him in the trot. It worked well. We trotted twice in both directions. I feel really happy about the progress!
