Zoe and Elektra and Keri and I got out for a quick zipping trot and then we worked in the big ring. Zoe is very focused on the shoulders in and haunches out thing -- so I followed her around learning some more too. Keri actually started to get it at the walk, but at the trot..well-- let me say; while one is learning, it seems it's best to stay at the sitting trot and Keri was being rather (brattingly) racy. I spent the rest of the afternoon sitting to her trot and attempting to keep her SLOW. I was very tired after that lesson ! But when we were done, she was getting the idea fairly well and actually did a little lateral trotting down the diagonal.. Elektra on the other hand - once she stops and listens.. she begins to digest her teachings quite well. Pretty exhausting stuff.. sitting properly, all those cues with your legs pushing over and holding in place... wow.
difficult to believe it's almost December -- Almost the end of November Battle of the Blogs- I've enjoyed hearing from all the new and long lost posters.. keep it up for December too !
