"Look back at our struggle for freedom,

Trace our present day's strength to it's source;

And you'll find that man's pathway to glory

Is strewn with the bones of the horse."

Lately I've been reading my Mastery Manual #7 on flexion, and "wow!" I have allot to play with before I can even do finesse, such as.....first I need to build Blaze's core muscle, he is every weak there, so I'm going to start backing him up steep hills, to build that, and his top line is not the best, so I'm going to start trotting him over poles to improve that. and also I have allot to improve myself with to even be able to ride with finesse. I need to build my core muscles, and learn how to do all of this, it is VERY confusing, I need a Professional here! lol! (never been to one) O.O! I figured out I am stiff when I ride blaze sometimes, and Blaze does not use his back and he doesn't use his HQs

I was looking at some pictures I had, and I was leaning forward, and Blaze wasn't using his HQs AT ALL!and I figured out when I ride angel she has this HUGE canter, because she is using her whole body, and Blaze is short fast and choppy, so I have allot I have to do!! I'm gonna work hard on getting my self to know how to do this, and build blaze;s core muscle, and get him to start using those HQs, he always stops on his for hand, and that has to stop! lol! I always was wondering when he stops why do I always fall forward, even if I'm on my balance point, and that is why! he isn't using his HQs! I have a picture of that, and have another O.O!! lol, also I'm gonna have to buy a confidence bit for Blaze, then see how he does with that, then save up and buy a cradle

also, I'm gonna be getting Blaze's coggins done soon, just in case if were picked for lake land spotlight. I'm VERY excited, cause just about EVERYONE I know on the savvy club chat room is going, HOPEFULLY I won't be RBI like I was at Jacksonville FL, last year, but I'm getting better with people, my problem is trying to keep a conversation with someone! I'm like hi, then don't know what to say LOL!

anyways that is what I've been up to lately, very very busy! I promis I'll post more!
