|cutest thing you've seen all day?|
But there was a critical miscommunication, Courage didn't leave, and the longer we're together, the more I realize we're right for each other.
I was watching videos of us the other day, and I saw a striking comparison. Here's Courage and I a year ago. This is an fairly standard training day.
It's fine for where we were at and there's nothing terribly wrong with it.
But here's Courage and I in a lesson last week. Again, fairly standard training day for where we're at right now:
We obviously have a long way to go, but I'm really excited about where we're at and how much we've changed.
It's not just the material gains I'm excited about either. The other day, I sat on Courage with the reins dropped on his neck while an advanced dressage horse did a lengthen canter right next to us, and I didn't even pick up the reins.
It's not because I'm stupid. It's because I know him and we're starting to trust each other.
To us, that's the most important thing.
