You think you got the stuff
She went through her paces fabulously, but the intensity of the work fried her a bit. I asked for too much and got a ton (in a snaffle), but at the end, I think I overstepped her a bit.
In that session, we worked on backing up immediately to canter, mediums, extensions, collected on the spot, schooling pir's, ultra-green tempi's and piaffe.
You get it? It's hard stuff.
The second session of the week was spent making up, large stretching circles, various outlines a bit of back and forth. It was short, and very sweet. Finished up on shoulder in/haunches in.
This week, the weather is supposed to hold. Hopefully we'll get on with everything.
