They all left though by the time I was tacked up, and I actually did have the arena to myself...but I had yet another "just okay" ride. I got suckered into chasing rabbits, as my instructor would say. I find that I am struggling with keeping my leg back and under me for dressage (not surprising since I had that awful chair seat). If I'm doing anything other than straight and forward with my legs, I tend to draw up one or the other or stand on my toe--and then in the time it takes for me to fix it, Shadow would get crooked or try to cut a corner or slow down--generally just a lot of distractions for me to chase. I think it may be that I'm not using my WHOLE leg still, just my calf or heel. I guess I just have to keep being aware of it and keep fixing it--and reminding myself that even though I've been riding for 12 years, I'm a total dressage newbie.
An-y-way...not much to report. Just slow progress.
I wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who has done the blog hop so far. It has been so awesome to see that so many people were interested, and I hope you join me again next week. No more technical difficulties, I promise :) Next week I'll also ask everyone to add a question of their own since that is something I liked in other blog hops.
Can you tell my New Year's resolution was to blog and write more?
