I don’t usually get a lesson on the weekends but JLE was able to squeeze me in last Saturday. Unfortunately it ended up being an indoor lesson since the weather was being just bizarre (sunny but hailing) but I feel like we got some real work done.
JLE had me work on riding off the rail a few feet and keeping him steady. Dandy is a bit of a drunk and it’s hard work keeping him straight! But once I did, I stopped over obsessing with my hands and focused on getting forward and straight from my legs suddenly everything started working. Straight. Forward. Connected. It was lovely.
Afterward Dandy got a little bath. Normally he is a pain in the butt for his bath but for some reason the other day he was so good. It was pretty muggy though, so maybe he was actually happy to get hosed down for once.
