It should be interesting...and hoping it will be helpful overall. I'll only be able to take lessons weather permitting as she doesn't have an indoor facility to work from.
Last night we just did some slow hill work. The footing is still pretty slick and I was riding solo. Phebes has a long way to go in the "solo" department. The momentum I'd been having with Doug and Cree along was "kapoot" riding solo. She wanted to walk at a crawl and her trot was sticky, so I decided to just work hills which we did for an hour and a half. No distance, no speed, just hills. Considering every trip up the big hill created a lot of huffing and puffing it was good work.
Off to start by two long days at work, will return on Friday.
