Thankfully I finally got my act together and booked a fun day with Supermom, who not only played with the little Nugget while I rode, but also managed to take some cute videos of me and the mare. (That kind of multitasking is something I could benefit from doing myself a little more often...)
|they are seriously too cute|
It was a good day complete with Egg Nog Lattes (my first of the season) and a yummy lunch once barn fun was done.
Prair continues to feel pretty good. Yesterday she felt a little stiff in her left lead canter, but I couldn't quite put my finger on what it was. N said she felt great on Wednesday, so I'll see if that stickiness is still there today, or if maybe it was some muscle soreness as her work load ticks up a notch...
Here's a quick clip of the canter. Somehow through the unintentional magic of iphones, it's in slow mo, which is sorta cool. I love it for looking at Prair, I could do without the extra time to stare at my left wrist, baby weight or other Eq issues that plague me....
I'm fighting with YouTube a bit, but as soon as I figure it out, I'll get a few more clips posted. I'm loving how much Prair is really trying to carry herself and how often I can literally loop my inside rein. She's respecting my outside aids really nicely and overall just being a pleasure to ride.
It's so nice to be back to WTC on this girl. I apologize if I sound like a broken record but if I do then it's an accurate portrayal of my brain when I ride - "fun fun fun eeek was that a weird step? fun fun fun WHEEEEEE fun fun hmmm stiff? fun fun fun fun"
Super sophisticated, I know.
