We almost had two major accidents where they stopped right in front of me.
However, this little girl is a cutie pie, I know her Mom and she is a true horse girl. My biggest peeve with Star is when we stop she throws her head up, pisses me off to no end, so here we are doing the " get your head down dammit" trick.
We did our first canter classes EVER. I know our canter skills arent perfect, but I have to do everything myself. I dont have a 24/7 trainer, I can't afford one, so I have to read, watch videos , have an occasional lesson and plead with friends to video me so I can see the horrible posture I have acquired. BLECH.
I must say, Star was a amazing.. She couldnt have been better I was proud of her and myself for growing " a pair" and going out there in front of our friends and doing something scary.
I scratched the 2 Novice Walk/Trots and entered the Novice Canter classes instead. All last minute, I figured while I had the courage I might as well **run** with it.
It felt like we were running since her canter is HUGE, but BBFF said it wasnt as much of a train wreck as I imagined it would be. The first canter transition went badly but once we got our mojo I thought we did fantastic. Right in the middle of cantering a huge CLAP of THUNDER and Crack of Lightening shook the whole barn and Sis didn't even raise an eyebrow, she just kep cantering like a good girl.
Like I say all the time.
I sure love that goofy mare.
