Can I just say WOW!

Journey had a busy (and exciting) seven days.  Logging 33.54 miles in the past week, plus some schooling tonight.  I realized this evening that I'm no longer riding a "drunken sailor."  It was a huge WOW moment.  She has always been so sluggish in the bridle and communication was like drawing her a picture at times.  Tonight we trotted patterns and I was nearly speechless she was just weaving and circling, and I said whoa and guess what I got?  WHOA.  Whoa!!!  My little spotted wonder has a brain  *LOL*.   We finished our session with a back up which is another hole in her training, and she stepped back nice and soft three full steps.  I said, we are done.  You horse, did REALLY REALLY good.  Myler bit people I LOVE YOU.

By the way, thought I'd mention...don't ever kiss your horse right after applying chapstick.
