Cantering

I took Diva for an adventure today, update on the reason soon.  She was amazing, settled and sensible.  The barn owners (also Gunner's owners) invited her to stay for a few days so she is going to hang out there all week in prep for the show this coming weekend.  They are some of the nicest people.  Today is the first time that I have ever cantered Diva and she was great.  Don't get me wrong I'm not one to say that an ottb doesn't know how to canter, they do, and well.  Diva on the other hand has grown leaps and bounds since I bought her, and she was still green even by track standards when I brought her home.  So, this whole cantering in small (compared to the track) loops made for somewhat tangled legs.  She was still amazing and I will push for more forward next time.  We also trotted over poles for the first time today, woot!
I couldn't quit smiling for the whole ride!  And one more shot, Diva's ears!
So there is some order to the pole madness we are looking at.

  1. Cantering is a big deal! It took Bobby a good four months to become capable of cantering a sort-of 20m circle. Go Diva!
