On Wednesday we went and visited my aunt who lives a couple hours away.
I had the pleasure of riding her 5 year old Percheron/Thoroughbred cross mare, Gracie. I had a great time on her!
Gracie has a lovely canter. She's a horse whom you truly ride through your seat rather than through your legs. . . it worked better to sit into her to make her go, than to squeeze with your legs. It was an interesting experience.
Below is a video. . . not exactly the most shining part of the ride, but a good example :)
Commentary by my mom ;) :
Lastly. . . I'm going to Canada this year to study with Lisa Huhn, and she just posted this to her youtube. It's a simply beginning video. . . but I do love it! I know that's weird but. . . I do. I get so excited about horse feet ;)
Daisy and I have been riding; today we barrel raced, which put her in a good mood. Monday I gave the usual lesson on her and Daisy was excellent! My student is getting better and better, and it's so fun to watch :)
