Cantered again yesterday. This time, no trainer in sight. It may have only been one twenty meter circle to the left and a half of a twenty meter circle to the right but it was cantering. I asked for the transition, I rode the transition and then I asked for the downward transition. Yeah!!
I am starting weekly massage and/or chiropractic treatment for my neck and shoulders. I am also really trying to focus on exhaling and relaxing those muscles when I ride. The nice thing about not having to spend so much time working past my fear, is that we can begin to work on things like my shoulders and how I must be tensing them the entire ride.
No barn for me today. I am going out to dinner at Teatro Zin Zanni, which is this cool dinner theatre experience. I am also coming down with a cold and have a sore throat and a runny nose and getting bundled up to go to the barn just isn't working for me this morning. So instead, I have made myself a gigantic latte (the joys of having a home espresso machine) and am going to catch up on everyone's blogs. Hope you all are having a great weekend!
