Rusty as barometer

Today Rusty told me I'm on the right track with my exercise regime and attention to using my core and releasing my back muscles. After all, if I want him to move with ease and release his topline, then I need to do the same. He's always been a horse who reflects the minute details of my presentation. And today we cantered both directions (haha, not at the same time!) without a hitch. And by hitch, I mean that literally. Nice even tempo set by me and no need for him to hop around with his hindquarters trying to match my tight back. Because my back was relaxed! Hooray!

Equine Affaire in Springfield, MA

I plan to be there on Saturday and Sunday, drawn to an opportunity to spend more time with my friends and teachers, Mark Rashid and Crissi McDonald. Please say hello if you are there. And for heaven's sake, please watch one or more of Mark's presentations! LOL
