Heyy Sunny! Still voting for ya! And in case you haven't heard from the other blogs I miss ya here on horsechannel! Monday night I had my first riding lesson of the year! My instructor takes winters off cause she says not as many kids want lessons when there's 3 feet of snow on the ground :P crazy, I know! Me and my friend have a double lesson which is super fun cause we get to ride together and we get a longer lesson! It was the first time my instructor, Molly, met Ditto! She thinks he's outstanding! She was watching us canter and said that we're doing fine we just need to keep working at it so he can figure out his balance. She was thrilled at what a soft mouth he has. Even though I ride him in a D ring french snaffle (like the easiest bit you can get!) I can back him just by squeezing my fingers together. One thing we really need to work on is getting him to move off my leg. Any ideas? Help! He responds to voice cues but I can kick all day and he's not gonna budge! Just cause he doesn't know what I'm asking him to do! Molly also told us to do a lot with downward transitions from the trot to the walk. Sometimes he's almost too responsive that when I ask him to walk he just stops! We've been doing tons of groundwork mostly lunging. We've both been learning to read each others body language. We're working on switching directions at a trot and soon a canter! When he's walking it's sooo cool if he's really paying attention and watching my body language if I take my eye off of his and slowly move it done his neck to his shoulder he'll stop! It's really neat. Well I hope you're all doing well! gtg to soccer practice. ttyl!!!
