lunging in the field, and a wonderful lesson

The field across the street from the barn slowly became the Very Scary Horse Gobbling Field of Death and now Lucy seems to think she WILL meet her demise if she walks by the trees. I took her out there yesterday to lunge her and she was bonkers right from the start. I took this photo of her with my phone after she had cantered around wild-eyed for a good while and she was finally realising that she was not going to die. Silly mare.

Today we had the most wonderful lesson! I feel like we accomplished a LOT, and we made big improvements from last week. I don't have any photos or video but it really was a great lesson! The best part is that I have found a way that we can have a lesson every week! This is mostly thanks to the generosity of my instructor, and his willingness to work with me. I am very excited to see where our continued lessons take us, and I am THRILLED that we can continue lessons :D


  1. Look at that coat on your girl! Shiny, shiny, shiny.

  2. Great news about being able to continue taking lessons!

  3. Yaaay! How exciting! :)Nothing feels better than when you finally make a huge improvement with your horse!

  4. Thanks everyone! I am still so happy today after yesterday's lesson and positive outlook for continuing them further :D :D
