|It's a baby Misty!|
In other news, our dressage show is exactly one week away. I didn't realize it was this close, it snuck up on us so fast!
Figured that I should probably ride Misty in the dressage saddle for the first time... I've just been playing around in the western saddle. I put it on her today and actually rode her as if we were doing our dressage test. It will definitely be interesting.
Stuff she needs to work on:
- Consistent contact
- Consistent tempo
- Bending and being on the bit at the same time
- Straight lines
- Stretching down into contact
She is definitely starting to trust me a lot more and I'm really having fun with her. Hopefully with time we can smooth out all these issues and I think she'll be a really nice little low-level dressage horse.

But in the meantime, luckily we still have the rest of the week to practice!
