|Tillie happily schooling at home like its no big deal|
Last weekend we did the grids, which always makes me feel safer...this week we did a bit more course work and single jumps which tends to open the door for building or sass. BUT much to my delight, Tillie was a gem. This leads me to feel incredibly bad for doubting her still...call it self preservation or PTSD, but I still dont always give her the benefit of the doubt.
|The moment Tillie realized we were jumping a kids toy table|
Tillie couldnt have been better though and we did some bending lines, some jumps here and there. She wanted to get behind my leg and contact but be quick like she has the tendency to do, but I tried realllllly hard to not fuss with her and just let her sort it out over the height I had set.
Anyway, Emma was excited and pulled out the fun kid table for us to try which Tillie didnt even blink at.
Ignore my horrid equitation...Ill be beating myself the next few jump schools to force me to be better even when "having fun".
I almost wimped out of riding on sunday after teaching all day, but realllllly glad I did because I tried a friends dressage saddle on Tillie and it was one of the better dressage schools we have had on our own that felt similar to what I get when I go to C.
We ended the short ride with a quick stroll through the gremlin field (most of the horses freak out up there) But Tillie was a solid citizen and walked around cool and calm! I was so proud of her :)
So now on to try to sell my saddles so I can get a new, better fitting one :/
