Seriously though, this is why I sometimes feel I should have just stuck with leasing and not bought a horse. I have been away more often than I have been around lately. Hopefully that is over for awhile.
Puerto Rico was beautiful but the work days were long and I only got back late last night. Haven't even been out to see Fawkes yet I am so tired. Luckily, he is in good hands when I am away.
Last Saturday's lesson seems so long ago, but it was pretty good.
Photos make many things pretty clear. Fawkes is definitely coming along well and looks excellent at the trot but he still needs more encouragement to reach with his hind end. And at the canter, we are still in the early stages of dropping his head and using his back. My elbows and I are not on the same page so we will keep working on that too.
Probably lots of other stuff going on too but I don't think we look half bad. Except his mess of a mane that I have 100% given up on. Everyone thinks I am kidding when I suggest roaching it.
