Day 3 ~ bow legged.
Watch the wonderful TB a friend owns being schooled. He started out very stiff, but loosened up well after a few minutes. I got to see what Bern meant about stepping into the stirrup to canter. It wasn’t anything obvious, but I could see her shift once she explained it.
Rode a 9 year old green broke mare yesterday. It was like riding a worm. Very wiggly! The fun part was watching her think through what you were asking her to do. She’s all snotty and jittery, and anxious, but never once misbehaved.
Rode Ava next, but she seemed very tired. Her trot work was fantastic. The canter work was okay. She just didn’t have much energy. Responsive, but tired.
Am procrastinating starting today. I’m sore and tired. It’s fun though!!
