Horsey goals in the eyes of a 9 year old horse obsessed little girl. Here is a post of a short 'interview' with my daughter.
What was it like when you first started riding Lilly?
It was fun and sometimes hard. She sometimes would run off and I had to learn how to stop her. Sometimes she would win but I figured it out. On the ground she was really pushy. I worked with her and taughter how to move her hind quarters, shoulders and how to back. I did this better than my mom because I had more patience.
What things are you learning now and teaching your pony?
Right now I am learning how to jump. I am trying to teach her to canter but she still gets off balance. I am learning how to turn her with my legs and seat and not my reins. I am trying to learn how to get her to stretch.
What is your favorite riding memory?
My first year as a 4-her I won the walk/trot equitaion class!
What do you want to learn this year?
I want to learn how to do a dressage test. I also want to jump cross country again. So some day I can do 3 day event.
Do you want to show this year? If so what shows are you most excited to do?
Yes! I want to show a combined test at the Heartland regional horse show. It would be my first combined test.
