It's been a month since I've filled everyone in
I'm in the process of switching from Lucky to this amazing, beautiful dark bay 17.2hh OTTB named Thinker. Thinker's a lot more challenging, but he's a sweetheart and I adore him. I rode him all this weekend and our first drill team practice together was today, we did really good except I rode in some funky stirrups which messed up my positioning and made me roll my ankle to the outside, my ankles were killing me and I could hardly post and I kept losing them :/
I'm cantering now, and I've done well with it, I'd say. We're working on canter positioning right now along with canter aids and collection. It's difficult but I need it.
I'm ordering Thinker a white AP pad with hunter green piping and keepers, a hunter green AP pad with navy and white piping, a cream dressage pad with purple and white piping, and some treats (he loves likit bars
This was just a quick little update, I doubt I'll be on frequently to make posts since I'm riding like 3 times a week now and with my AP classes I honestly have no time
