Speaking of feed and changes, look who is losing her giant belly!
We had a pretty good ride today. Lilly is making a lot of progress with her lope, and while she's not western pleasure slow, I can leave her on a loose rein and not feel like we're racing around the arena at warp speed. We've been working a lot on transitions and leads and she's making some good progress there as well. She's still a challenge, though, because she never wants to wait until I ask, so I've been trying to keep her guessing so there's less anticipation on her part. I'm not sure it's working, but I think I'm going to switch her back to the snaffle for a little while. Sometimes she works better that way.
