G did come out this morning to take a few photos.
|A bit of this...|
|And a bit more of that!|
We managed to canter a few strides, and then an entire long side, which is cause for much celebration. It's baby stuff, she needs to figure out her balance with me up there, and she's also just the type who would rather trot super fast than canter, even out in the field with her buddies. I try to set her up in the corner to help her with her leads, but if she ends up wrong, I just ignore it and keep her moving forward a few strides. Her trot is crazy big and bouncy for such a little thing, so the day we build a bit of a canter will be quite welcome to me!
I sucked it up and did my base time for Two Pointober. I lasted 4:03, which leaves a lot of room for improvement!
