Staying between the aids

IMG_0033More flatwork in the arena today. She started out a little silly, but she camie around nicely and after a few minutes we were at the point that we ended yesterday. No bucking in canter today and better steering. She settled quite a lot. Really I think she is just mostly unsure of what she is supposed to be doing and she gets nervous and starts guessing.

After our first round of canter work, we relaxed on a long rein. When we were walking past the mirror, she was interested in looking at herself, so I let her play for a while. It was pretty cute. She’s a darling horse.
