Since I have 2 years left in high school and I am *finally* getting to achieve my goal of riding four days a week I thought I would make a thread to update with my progress. The last two years my riding has been sort of erratic with 2 days a week being the most every week but this year I have started a half lease payment on any school horse. So basically I just ride whoever is available. My pony is retired from riding due to some problems with tripping and arthritis so this gives me a chance to ride different horses. My goals for this year are to become more confident, to strengthen my leg position, and to learn to override some conformation issues I have that end up putting my body in weird places on a horse. (My mom jokes that I'd never pass a broodmare inspection XD) I will try to remember pics because I know that is required but I'm so bad at remembering... I rode today on the appy pony at the barn, he's young but very willing and we worked on using my outside rein through turns and not letting my leg slide back at the trot. Then my trainer let me get on her really nice warmblood mare and boy was that cool! She felt like butter at the canter. She is also young but should turn out really nice. Included is a pic of the pony that I rode.
