Tuesday evening diary – getting ready for our horse show!

We are having a horse show at the end of this month!! My plan is to enter it with Alfie, but today’s lesson with Martini was to go over what I would be doing with Alfie. The classes I’m doing with Alfie are all at a walk, and he should be fine with what we have to do.

After we went over the walk classes, Martini and I broke out or trotting. I’m getting so much more comfortable with changing my diagonal when needed all while keeping him trotting.

The magnificent Martini.

I was thinking back to the first time I met Martini. I looked at him and was terrified because he was so big. With a lot of encouragement I found the courage to just sit on him. From there it was walking. Then trotting. Then cantering. I am so glad I put on my big girl pants and put my fear aside for the privilege of learning from the magnificent Martini.❤️🐴
