It's A Girl!

Cute chestnut filly. No photos allowed so I won't be able to post any. Mama and baby are doing great.

Another really good lesson last night. Very positive for all of us with only a minor correction here and there. I actually felt comfortable at a sitting trot. Since I don't recall a sensation of sliding out of the saddle, I expect I was using stirrups. We practiced riding with and without them. I still have trouble picking them up. If I had my own saddle on a really sturdy stand I could practice at home. I can rationalize anything...


  1. It's too bad you can't get any photos of the new addition, she must be adorable.

    Glad to hear you had a good lesson and the sitting trot went well. Wonder if you bought a set of those Intelligent Stirrups(did a review on my blog) if they would let you use them on their saddle for you lesson and then take them off and bring them home. I know it would be a pain but for now it might help you pick up your stirrup quicker.

  2. For some reason I can't get to the comment form on Illegal vs. Immoral. Anyway, people always want something for nothing in my opinion. This one's a real jerk. Obviously, doesn't have an ounce of morals.
