I’m not really sure how I wound up leaving my blog sitting here in the dust of the arena footing… but, I’m back and I promise I will work hard to start sharing some of my exercises and homework with you as well as introducing some reviews of the equipment I have in my tack trunk.
It’s ironic to me that I named my blog “From Canter to Pirouette.”
When I started writing two years ago, Aragorn and I were struggling with the canter. He was unbalanced, often uncontrollable, heavy on the forehand, and consistently behind my leg. I dreaded working the canter because the effort that was required on my part just to keep him going was about a 9 on a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being almost no effort required.
Well, two years later and we almost literally have gone from canter to pirouette.
We went from struggling with simple consistent bend in both directions and maintaining a connection two years ago to training 3rd level with the intentions of showing this year!
I could keep writing about this and talking about all of the trials we went through to get to the point where we are today, but I’d like to save that for a scattering of future posts. What I’d like to focus on today is saying this- I don’t know why I haven’t posted in so long, but I’d like to apologize.
However, I see my exercise posts being frequently repinned on Pintrest, and my Facebook page still gets visitors. So, thank you- thank you for your continued interest in my past posts, thank you for giving me the motivation to return to the keyboard, thank you for affirming me as a potential writer that can truly help and continue to help other Adult Amateurs just like myself.
I’m excited to be back!
