Two Years

Wednesday was McKenna and my two year anniversary. I really can't believe it's been that long. In many ways I feel like a slacker and that we should be farther along in her training than we are but all I do is have to look back at where she was and I realize how far we've come.

First ride.
Two years later

We had a lesson that night and apparently I had my big girl breeches on because we jumped the boxes for the first time! I think it was a combination of the new bit, trot poles, and actually feeling like I had brakes because I was much braver than I have been for months, if ever with her. It felt like we were on the same page and I could relax a bit and let her go. Especially after the fences I was able to get up in a half seat and let her cruise right along. It was a very, very nice feeling. 
I got this mom!
