Show first level
Get summer job related to horses
Apply for riding scholarship from local dressage club

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.
