June is so wonderful! We had an awesome ride yesterday and today, she's starting to really improve on her turning and going off leg pressure. Me and my sister both rode her at a walk and trot around the arena and she was an angel. Yesterday's ride was near perfect, and today's was even better! Although she kept trying to bite our legs today, not sure what that was about, I think she's going back into heat. But once we fixed that problem she was listening perfect, she went where we asked her, walked when we wanted and trotted when we wanted, walked and trotted past the cows, llama, and Phoenix (they were on the other side of the fence) and even kept listening when we had an audience, my mom and dad and grandparents came out to watch my sister ride. And her stop is really good and back up has dramatically improved. I'm so lucky I found such a great horse, none of this would be possible if she wasn't such a rockstar. I'm hoping to canter soon but I need to work on my posture more while trotting before I do, I kept bouncing out of the saddle today. And Phoneix is starting to warm up to us. We had a bonfire out in the field last night, and usually unfamiliar things spook him, but he came up real close to the fire, so I stood and brushed him out, then I sat down in a lawn chair and he walked right up and chewed on the chair and sniffed everyone, and he licked me! Lol it was nice to see him being sociable.
Yesterday June worked up a sweat for probably the very first time in her life! And she likes getting in the pond lol
