Been so long...

Does anyone read this anymore? Haha, I feel like a terrible blogger. Well, if anyone is still out there, thanks for sticking with me. I'm sorry I don't make it to more of your blogs, I am sure once Winter rolls around that will change. But, for now it's Summer and I've just been so busy!

I am still riding colts and learning tons. It's hard to find time for my own horses, but I still like them best. It's probably a good thing to like your own horse best when you ride other people's all day long.

I have been working on getting flying lead changes with Remington. I've been working on it for about 4 days now and he's coming along okay. What he prefers to do is change in front and leave his hind end in the opposite lead. You'll see in the video that he just about changed both at the same time, but the front still came first. In a correct lead change, they need to change back to front. I'm working on it, but I think I'm going to need a lesson from my trainer before I go too much farther. Rem is the most forgiving horse in the world, so I don't have to worry too much about screwing him up, but I would prefer to do things right the first time.

Well, tomorrow is my first day going back to school. I've got a Summer math course to take :-( My least favorite subject. Oh well. I hope it goes by quickly... though then it will be Fall just around the corner.

I better get some sleep, I'll try to blog more often!
