Yesterday was the last lesson in the group of lessons that I purchased with my birthday money back in February. The major themes in the lessons so far had been rhythm, relaxation, softness, inside leg to outside hand, and introducing a bend. I had struggled to put it all together but finally got it right at the tail end of my lesson last week, but I was really hoping to solidify our work in yesterday's lesson. I am so pleased with Lucy because we had a few "mare moments" but we got some lovely canter work. We focused a lot on transitions and we had a few nice trot walk transitions off of my seat, which is HUGE for her.
Here are two videos:
