Early Days

Winter = Equitation

Spirit and I have been working hard since coming home from the show. Our lesson schedule has gotten a bit screwed up by the rains, but we’re doing fairly good considering, and we are still making progress. The last few lessons in particular have been focusing on me as a rider, rather than on Spirit. My position is improving, and I do feel that I am getting stronger. 

Yesterday we had a fantastic jump lesson, and since we had sunshine and warmth for the first time in a while, I decided to give Spirit a nice soapy bath scrubdown. Of course, even though I put her away with a flake of hay while I went to get some supplies, she took a 30 second break from munching to roll in the shavings. Nice.
