Sora's gotcha day is officially on the first of August. That was the day when this arrived at my home.and Sora stepped off.
She undeniably changed my life and I am so lucky to have her!
To celebrate I ordered one of these with her name embroidered on it, a nice soft fleecy half back pad (to keep her back comfy as her muscles change) and a nice fleecy Dressage girth so I can start riding her in my Dressage saddle. I can't wait until they get here and I'll be sure to take pictures to post here.
I did also ride her today (ride number ten) and she was perfect as usual. I worked mainly on stopping since starting on Sunday I'll have someone to trail ride with and I want to make sure I have brakes first lol!!! I also tried something a little tricky just to see what she would do. I rode her over to the gate to our arena, leg yielded her up to it and leaned waaaaaaay over to unlock the gate. She was perfect and only jumped a little as I swung the gate open. We went out then and walked around the lawn and over to the field a little. I was really happy and we called it a night since I had limited time. I'm hoping that I can ride tomorrow after work and if I can I'm planning on riding her with the bit for the first time although I'll only use the halter to steer the first time. I'm so excited.
