I cannot believe how much it is to ride now when I have Talhoffer. It so much more I can do. Today we worked on the shoulder in on the serpentines, and then also in canter. It was far from perfect, before I just had to take what I was given, but now I could be like “what if I straighten my leg, in this moment?” or “what if I put my leg on when the back leg steps” and just – hallelujah moment. Realizing I can experiment! And Talhoffer is just so amazing. He really tries!
He is also starting to like show himself, being more comfortable, and playful. Which is fun, but not equally fun that he is starting using his teeth more and more. But we get there.
