Today I met my riding goal of the year- to canter confidently, steer and go in different directions. I had a lesson on Bay Sam, and despite the awful wind, he was super good and co-operated beautifully with me when we practised our dressage test for the upcoming Scarlett Oak Dressage and Showing Day. We have a long way to go, but it was so exciting to canter 20 metre circles then down the side of the arena, trot, change the rein then canter along the side, around another circle - wheee! Great fun! Next lesson next week.
