2010???..........I THINK SO!!!

Since the new year has started, i have given in to peer pressure and am making a Goals for 2010.
These will be very difficult........nope thats not the word.


take us out of our comfort box????
okaayy well that will have to do for now.
so on to the goals!!

Goals for 2010

Number Two:
Walk Pirouette
(this must be pretty, however)

Number Three:
Get a real pretty Legit lenghening

Number Four:

Number Five:

(this should be easy, but i have failed in the past, so you never know)

Number Six:

Number Seven:

Number Eight:

Number Nine:

Number Ten:

So now for some updates

Shoulder-in: (that evil movement) is down pat, can do that in my sleep

Collected canter: could still use some work (and collection)

Lengthenings: India can hold it twice as long as she could before so now about half way across the diagonal. Then it kind of falls apart, she just isn't strong enough to hold it that long yet.

Haunches-in: we can go half-way down the long side before falling apart. My seat bones won't behave, and India still thinks that i've lost my mind and that i should be asking for a leg yield

Simple Changes: are down to four steps of trot and three steps of walk (which reminds me i need to work on canter-walk)

Turn on the forehand: got it. own it.

Turn on the haunches: getting better needs work

Walk pirouette: Slowly but surely getting better, and smaller, not quite there yet.

I'm going to risk bragging a little here, but screw it, its my blog!!
The last time India picked up the wrong lead was exactly one month ago (i've been counting)
Do i have the best pony ever?? Yes, i think so.

Mobile Shout-out to Dorothy M.

don't listen to the bad pony Dorothy!!!

What did you say puny human???

I'm sorry india

Happy 2010 everybody!!! :D
