My 1/2 hour lessons are going really well. I've learned that if I stretch when I first get on my jitters go away quickly and the horse and I have a better connection. We've been working on my communication at the sitting trot and getting a better, more balanced seat. Then we're moving that approach to the canter. Today I did the most composed sitting trot I've ever been able to do and my canter transitions are starting to feel really good to. my leg position is improving also. ___________ By
