We had an amazing ride today. The grass is so green again and the ground is about a million times better than the last time I went. Loki was about a million times better too. We have had no run outs (knock on wood) in at least the past two weeks and we had none today and we did pretty much all of the beginner novice fences. WooHoo! The jumping is feeling great. We do still have some work to do, though. We are still having trouble with those darn shoulders (particularly the right). I've been working on bending to the right at the canter a lot but it was obvious today that much more work needs to be done. Most of our work of late has been in an arena with a fence so cantering in a circle in a wide open field definitely made the trouble spots much more obvious. Still, it was a fantastic day and I know it will only get better. I just wish I had more time!!
