I really wanted to finish the week on a good note, especially after Thursday's dirty spooks. I've learned that with Sydney especially, I have to let go of the bad moments and expect the next one to be fabulous. So that's what I did. On Friday, I saddled up and never gave another thought to the shenanigans of the day before. The result? We had a very pleasant ride with very nice canter work to the right.
We didn't work on anything new. I simply practiced putting together my aids to hold Sydney in the right lead canter as we head down the long sides. I am excited about today's lesson because I think JL will be happy with our progress. I can see that this is going to take a long time to develop. After just a few minutes at the right lead canter, Sydney starts to fatigue. I think he is using his body in a way that is very new for him.
I find this exciting though. It means I am on the right track!
I've launched a second blog! Keeping this one going seven days a week is already work enough, so why I think I need a second one remains a mystery. For this second blog, I am planning to post once or twice a week.
My second entry into the blog-o-sphere is food related; it's called The Baker Foodie. I may have mentioned that I like to cook. You can find find it at www.thebakerfoodie.com.
