Clinic, day 2
Sunday, December 13, 2009
It started out innocently enough. COntinuing with the shoulder in work, some canter work. Then she had me canter and do a flying change. No problem, we've done them before. Another diagonal, change, THEN ANOTHER on the same diagonal, and another! We did it! Cool! It was fun, but hard to control where my body should be vs where it wanted to be. We continued in this vein for a while, and added half pass (forward and sideways), then prouettes.
Phew! I hae a lot of work to be able to say that I'm proficient at these moves, but I can honestly say now that I have done them, and had good moments with them. I really enjoyed the ride, and I know Falcao did.
Today we are working in the double bridle, which is the "big girl's" bridle, as it is used in the upper levels. We'll work on much of the same stuff as yesterday.
The problem I had yesterday was eating wise. But not the way it normally is. I didn' t eat enough for the day without the exercise. Problem was that I just wasn't that hungry. Go figure! Today I'll add a protein bar after I ride and make sure I get a good lungh before. Maybe even dessert after dinner. What a strange dilemna to be in!
Me, undereat???? Naaaah! Oh, well.
