|Trottin' so fine|
After two days of intense good flatwork, I wrapped up the week by actually having redheadlins as a witness to the general badassery.
It wasn't that I did anything so differently--just that I stepped up and wouldn't take no for an answer. For anything. Walk out of the cross ties, promptly. (I absolutely refuse to drag horses around.) Stand at the mounting block. March when I say go. Stop when I say whoa. Keep your body straight. Pick your shoulders up.
And it totally pays off.
|He does this now|
OH YEAH YOU READ THAT RIGHT.
I'm really getting a feel for that forward, flowing stride that makes Courage stand out and he is making tons of progress.
Cross your fingers for a lesson Sunday. :-D
