Ride Recap (With Pictures Finally!)

Again, I`m feeling uninspired and will let the pictures tell the story!
Here we come!


Whee!

 Maybe we`ll just trot it now?


Being all fancy pants.


Proof she picked up those hind legs once or twice. Also proof of my duck feet.

More fancy pants. She was a wee bit excited today. It looks cute but she's hiding behind the contact again. Although we are by no means established with it,  I later figured out she was extra fussy as she had some objections to the saddle I was trying on her. Pony saddle fitting...ughhhh.


Please flex and give me a nicer contact pony. She says OK but I'll pop that shoulder WAYYY out cause this is hard. Only slightly motorbiking and I'm all hunched up like a gnome- good thing we have a lesson coming up.

We have a baby canter

Whee! Forward is good!

Good pony!

    1. G is surprisingly good at taking action pics - I'm going to have to sign him up more often :) Of course I just deleted all the pictures where pony or I (or both of us!) look exceptionally bad ha ha

  5. Ahhh, I am so familiar with the total lack of effort Cob trot over the jumps at first. Haha. Connor and Aviator both did that with me. She looks so cute! Love that blue breastplate on her.
