day

riding lesson and trail ride with o in the morning. pretty good actually! half a cup of coffee first. he's stiffer to the right, working on laterals. worked him on the lunge with some contact, asking him to modulate his speed and drop his head. did a bunch of good free trot on the figure 8 (i still feel like we sometimes get disconnected on long straightaways?) and EVENTUALLY some good relaxed riding with no rein contact. SUCH AN AWESOME HORSE.

i also went to handbalancing class which was kinda not good. couldn't kick up worth a damn, zero trust in being spotted by my classmates and barely okay with my instructor. best exercise for me right now is probably the handstand to flop over flat on a thick mat, just to keep me moving enough. it's hard to not wimp out every single time.
