Normally I can't seem to get any pictures because as soon as I lift the camera to my face, she stops doing whatever it is I ask her to do. I decided to try being sneaky today and just hang the camera around my neck and "shoot from the hip" so to speak. Some of the pictures turned out nice and some of them showed only a headless horse. It's a good thing I snapped a lot of them!
She is always quite well behaved in the round pen... I think she listens better than most children I know (and I know many). I can point in the direction I want her to go and she goes, I can trot with my own feet and she'll trot, and when I ask her to canter, she doesn't take off like a bat out of hell anymore. She gave me beautiful transitions and a wonderful, relaxed LOPE in both directions. :)

It was a lot of fun. :)
Oh, and look what the UPS guy brought me today! It's awesome and I can't wait to try it out!
