A Princess Tale... and Circles!

One day a Princess and her noble steed were invited to a grand gala! Of games and food and fun galore! Unfortunately the noble steed required his royal feet to be tended, and a visit from the royal vet for his yearly irritations. That left the Princess's wallet empty... and very sad, for she could not afford to go to the gala...

Then her mother the queen the cooler princess (because princesses have more fun than queens apparently) remembered she still wanted to gift her daughter with a christmas present and offered to pay for the show fees! So the Princess (the younger) can once again attend the grand gala and all is well with the world...

Okay enough of that.

Ashe and I had a decent ride today. Working on bending, stopping on the seat, and.... we started working on turning on hind/fore.

Had a lot of temper tantrums, and I have to wonder if getting a full cheek might help with him figuring out what I'm asking. We got some really good steps in but I think this is going to take a lot of time and practice.

Other than that he was awesome jumping and cantering though tired quickly. We're still out of shape from having nearly 3 weeks off but it's quickly coming back. We're going to practice for Sunday's fun show this week as well. Should be fun and hoping for warm weather!
