After so long without eyes on the ground, as well as all of my orthopedic issue and compensations, we worked a great deal on my position. We also worked on me really feeling when each of her front legs wasn’t holding her shoulders up enough, and getting her a bit more even and lighter in front. Amy and Callie also worked on their position, and not letting the horse change the rider. It was a very productive day, and we can’t wait to go back!
It’s been more than two years since my hips felt up for taking lessons. Each run of good days I had last summer was quickly squashed by bad ones, and despite really WANTING to haul out to my trainer, it just never happened. This summer, things are finally feeling different! I also knew Amy wanted to get back to lessons after a winter so, so as a Mother’s Day surprise, I booked us both lessons with USDF Gold-medal trainer Sandy Tull. It was SO nice to be back, even if all my muscles were screaming after about ten minutes!
