so much to say ..

I have now completed two months at Jennifer's barn and have learned more things that I could ever imagine. I got to take three lesson with international dressage trainer Toine Hoefs and in the clinic I was riding an Arab stallion named Wajure, which I love to death and take many lessons on! I ride Wajure everyday and he is one of my favorite horses at the farm.  He has taught me how important it is to have quiet hands and legs. Jennifer says each day I ride him I become an even better rider.

With Wajure, we have started to school pirouetts - cooliest thing ever what horses can do!! It leaves me speechless everytime we get it right (:

As you can see in the picture, it is very important that your shoulders are back far enough so that the horse can lift its front legs enough to move in a very small circle!!

This is just a couple of the things that I have been doing . There will be more to come (:

Thanks for reading !!
