October 13

10 days boarded
5 days training

Sunday was my day off to clean this house up and haul stuff to the dump.
Monday, my dog got sick and I had to take her to the vet.

Today, my friends cat (roommate) went to the vet... but I got out for a nice hard ride in the evening.

I really drilled Miami, tonight. She definitely knows her basics, so we took things a step further. The majority of the lesson was working at the trot, getting her to lower her head, bring her back up, track under herself, yet maintain a nice slow rhythm. She did great.

I also asked for the canter tonight. It took a bit of encouragement, but she went.. the first few strides were extremely tense and I was ready for some bucking, but she worked out of it and we didn't have any problems. She is incredibly unbalanced at the canter, though. She feels as if she'll fall down at any second if you sit wrong. It's going to take some work to get her through this.. we'll see what she's like after thirty days. I have high hopes for her trot, though.
