It has been an interesting few months of breakthroughs and set backs. We have had some awesome rides where I was feeling like we are a team Mister and I and moving together, forward and willingly. And then we would have a day where he just wouldn’t listen-no forward movement, grumpy at other horses, and really not listening to my leg, sigh-sometimes it feels like one step forward and two steps back!! I guess that’s the way it goes-just really would like some some more consistent and focused rides! However I have to realise that I’m waaaay farther ahead then I was a few months ago and while my steps back seem awful to me, I’m ahead of where I used to be! I just get frustrated when I have the really good days and can’t keep them going the next ride!! We had an interesting ride in our English saddle a few weeks ago which made me question whether or not I ever want to ride English again! However I am far too stubborn for that! lol I did ride in my English saddle again after that but only once. It’s on my list of things to get better at! However I want to really learn how to use my seat first!! It’s coming. And I guess the learning curve keeps curving upward! We will get there-actually we are getting there! I am totally loving being able to ride 4 days a week and spend some quality time with my brat!!!
