My good friend C came to ride Lucy today. I warmed Lucy up so she could see what we've been working on since she last came to ride, and then C got on. C is much more diligent than I am and she is a really nice rider.
Lucy started out very tight and bitchy, then relaxed and gave C some nice work, then had a moment of rebellion and was a giant PITA, and then resigned herself to actually do some work and C got some REALLY nice trot and canter from her. It was a crazy ride.
