Bouncy Poles

Kathy took this amazing picture of us. Love it.

Rob and I had another successful, if short, ride yesterday. Our trotwork felt more like working than fighting, woohoo! We trotted over some “one stride” poles, then cantered over the 3″ medium-height cavaletti. Once she took a really long distance and completely left me behind, which made me feel good – I’m glad she’s understanding the concept of distances. Lastly, we did a bouncy trio of cavaletti, with two on the bottom height and one on the medium height. It felt really great. I have to remember to help her through combinations by staying active, keeping her collected, and pulling her up through the strides a bit.

Overall, it was a very great ride. Man, is she getting better quickly.
