Memorial Weekend

Ellie and I had a fun Memorial Weekend together!
We had a great time with Kelly in our Friday lesson- working on a pole grid- a line of two 5 strides that really helped me feel her strides and also worked on her adjustability as we had to collect quite a bit in the second.

Saturday we hacked for a bit over that same line and joined in the flat portion of the 11 o'clock and did some no stirrups and two point. Much needed!

Sunday Jillian was subbing for Emma and patiently listened while I described all of Ellie's (read my) "issues" and then we proceeded to canter a few crossrails! Yeah!

Lexi and Jinx joined in my Sunday lesson (we amateurs having a little joke about hazing but I didn't actually make her lie on the ground while Ellie jumped over her) and we relaxed after the lesson on our short loop! Good for the mind and soul!
