I rode Spots all by myself today! I tacked him up and got on, no warming up by Annie or pony-rides. He was good! We walked, trotted, walked over some poles, and CANTERED! He is FAST. But he has a great stop and it wasn't unsettling at all. He is learning to stretch down and go on the bit on cue. I worked on leg-aids and he seemed to improve even in just the one session.
We rode out in the field with Michelle on Dan, an Arab gelding a friend owns. Dan was screaming for Michelle's mare, but Spots was not bothered at all and we just walked around nicely in the field. I was very proud of him.
He thinks he is SO grown up. It is really amazing to be riding my "baby" horse! He is such a good boy.
