|I even re-dressaged his mane|
So instead of walking you step by step through the best dressage ride of my life so far (Saturday) and possibly the hardest (Sunday and I had to get off because walk was too much for me), I wanted to talk a little about why I love my barn.
|this is less tipped than some|
|i'm impressed with him|
|even with me tipping, i like this picture|
Sunday we addressed my crookedness head on and while I finally did get straighter, I couldn't both think and ride, so I ended up hopping off and letting my trainer ride to help straighten Courage out while I just watched and processed. I did get back on and recreate some of it (and Courage was really good the whole time), so that was very helpful. Also helpful: knowing that he is crooked for people other than me.

PS many thanks to Alyssa for making the best of a dark indoor and taking dressage pictures for us anyways.
