Had a great short morning with Aspen today. My friend Will came out to see her so we played a few ground games on-line and she was looking very rideable so I tacked her up and hopped on. We played some Touch-It with a few items and then moved into a trot. She did lots of blowing and breathing while I was on her which was a great step forward for us! Her head was still up a bit but we're making progress! :) Should have had Will take some pictures but I didn't even think about it! :( She felt great though and I am so excited that we are making headway on our Level 2 freestyle tasks.
I think the one thing I need to improve is having more of a plan when I get on - even if it's just a plan to do a passenger lesson. I need to stick to one thing - not switch between maybe a passenger lesson, and maybe some circles, and maybe this or that. Leaders have plans! :)
