Time for a much needed long and lovely post, n'est pas?
Alright, first things first. Remember those things below?? (They are also in the side column! >>)
- Pass Level 1
- Go out on the trails confidently w/ a saddle and hackamore.
- Be 100% comfortable in the stall.
- Fluidity at the trot and onwards.
- Balance in the saddle.
- Refine phases.
- Raising my energy. [Lightening bolts & purple waves.]
- Being more aware and improving my use of body language.
- My lightness.
These are my goals to complete before the end of November. (Yea that is when fall ends for me :P)
I just read over them today and realized something. I've already completed alot of this!
Go out on the trails confidently w/ a saddle and hackamore ✓
Fluidity at the trot ✓
Balance in the saddle ✓
Being more aware and improving my use of body language. ✓
Pretty darn good if you ask me!!
I completely forgot to tell you guys I have started teaching lessons! Yes, yes!
To be honest, its been a little bumpy. I have been using Casper but he hasn't been the most cooperative. Sharlie on the other hand has been a charm. However it is very true that Sharlie is much more intimidating than Casper is due to her size. Its a completely new path so we are sort of expirementing as we go. (Unfortunatly for poor Jimmy!)
Then next week I am going down to Savannah to go see my friends! They are (hopefully) starting Parelli and so I'll help them out a bit. I can't wait to go to the beach, eat donuts for breakfast and watch all the X-Men movies.
Also, keep an eye on the Parelli Central blog for when my blog post is published! :D
Anywho...that is all for now! :)
