Well, at least one word in the title is true. We had our first canter early Sunday morning. It was just a few strides, but it was lovely. We also discovered a nice, big trot. Izzy is such a nice mover that she's really a joy to ride.
Today, we cantered a whole circle on the left lead, but we haven't tried the right yet. I want her to be a little more balanced and comfortable before I ask for something that will be harder for her.
We might go to a tiny little schooling dressage show early next month and ride an intro test. I'll keep you updated.
