'Oh Noes! Another dressage lesson!"
Yes today I finally got back into dressage lessons with my poor dude Montana who had been happily munching in the pasture for several days since our trail ride Saturday.
We worked on transitions from seat and leg. Some time in the past, I was apparently abducted by aliens and they installed evil little bad riding machines in my hands. These alien machines kick into gear whenever I want them not to. They really screw around with my riding by causing my hands and wrists to malfunction/hyperfunction when they are supposed to be doing nothing, nothing at all. I am so sorry I fell victim to this alien abduction because otherwise I am sure I would be a great rider with tactful quiet hands. Life is such a bitch sometimes.
Montana enjoyed his grain treat plus supplements afterwards:
And Johnnie acted out a bit, because he really wanted to do something today and I did not have time:
But then he got quieter and just looked at me from afar with guilt-inducing stare:
Funny dudes. A storm was blowing in and it has been raining a cool gentle rain ever since. Nice!!
