lovely enough, my thanksgiving break involved time with at least one horse - Deli, owned by Marie/[livejournal.com profile] lurath. Incidently, I'd ridden her exactly 1 year previously and found a green but capable mare who just needed a reaaaaaally steady rider (and a better saddle).

In that year's time, Marie's gotten both of those (I think the bareback riding helped a lot!), cause even i couldn't find a decent balance at the canter this year, since it was SO much stronger and ground covering. Last year it was a rocking horse lope and easy as pie. Opps! More capable horses aren't always easier to ride.

But we had MUCH fun, including little-red-hair-mare moments (on Deli's part, not as much on mine ;) ) and ended up schooling parts of 1st level 1 test just for the heck of it.

It's very cool to find that degree of change (ok ok so it WAS a full YEAR) over time and to still give a few tips (plus give Deli heartattacks with trot shoulder ins) and really push to see what she could do now (vs. 1 year ago).

yay! brings smile to face :D
