|Looks almost like a legit dressage pony|
As for the lesson, we only did walk-trot but it was some of the best and hardest work we've had yet. TS was really getting after me about not getting after McKenna. I'm being too easy on the mare and it's time to up the ante. We really focused on our leg yields going left. The mare absolutely doesn't want to move off my left leg, or will move her shoulders but not her hind end. I was given a dressage whip and told to lightly tap her with it. McKenna had the predicted melt down, "OH MY GOD MOM IS BEATING ME!!!!!!!!" but after a couple half hearted hops up and down she gave it up and went back to work. I was really happy with the fact that she could come back to work after losing her little pony brain. That almost felt better than the leg yields we ended with!
