Riding Lesson

Marcos worked with me on my riding in the indoor arena.  He had me work on a canter in larger and smaller circles, and on stopping and turning.  When stopping, plant your feet forward and sit down in the saddle.  Tap the whip to get going again.  It is all about communicating with your horse, letting her know what you want.

Afterwards, I went out to stick and ball on my own in field 3.  It was a gorgeous evening, with geese on the field.  I worked on all of my shots.  Canella has a sneaky thing where she moves away from the ball at the last moment – aha!  all her fault….. not.

They are forecasting a big thunderstorm for tonight.
