This week my homework assignment is to allow my knee and thigh to be relaxed (rather than pinching or gripping with my upper leg) so that I can make better use of my leg and seat aids.  To do this I must go as far as lifting my leg off Rijkens and then keep my knee softly hanging once I return my leg to normal position.

Also, I must continue to give the inside rein, especially in counter canter so that Rijkens' whole body can stay supple and through.

Had an AB FAB ride on Lola today.  What a horse.  What a girl.  What a mare!  It's been a couple months since I've ridden a Trakehner mare and my ride on Lola today reminded me how fun it is!
