Canter at last

Echo and I had help again yesterday with our canter transitions, and it was great. It was a very proud mummy moment. :)

We started by working on forward motion, so a lot of walk to trot, trot to halt, halt to trot, and then hey bingo, i got it, leg on and off he popped.

It was terrific, i still had my friend shouting "sit up, shoulders back", to remind me, but he was so off my leg, lovely and forward. I think by concentrating on the transitions i completly forgot about getting the canter transition wrong.

  2. Sarah! That is like me, taking pictures while riding has helped me with my confidence issues because I forget to be nervous while I am thinking, "Hey, this would be a great picture," and then all is fine.
