Gracie is doing well.

What we can now do:
  • Walk and trot both ways under saddle
  • Figure 8 under saddle, walk and trot
  • Halt
  • Back (sort of in a bit, very well in a halter)
  • Walk and trot bareback
  • Shy, gallop off and pull up without bucking or dumping the rider (yay, I think?)
  • Understand what support leg means in relation to directional aids
  • Not move our feet when having a plastic bag tied to a whip flapped about all over our body and head
  • Have a tarp put over her entire body
She is doing very well. Such a mare, cheeky, bratty but very sweet and loves learning.

In case anyone wasn't aware, Becks passed away. I don't really want to talk about it, it was a few weeks ago now, I'll write an entire blog on it when I feel I can do it justice.

But for now, crappy phone pics and videos from tonight.
