Goal: keep up good position and keep softness throughout ride.
My goal tonight was mainly focused on my position, especially my slouchy shoulders. Max is a smart cookie and he already knows a lot more than I do. Which means I have a bit of catching up to do! I also wanted to focus on staying soft..as in..light seat and reigns but still maintaining good contact throughout the entiiiiiree ride. Hahaha...delusional
A good position is very very hard for me because I'm not exactly what you call super fit, although I'm working on it! I think I achieved it here and there, and when I did he rode like a dream. That's how I can tell! I fell apart more than I held it together so unfortunately I don't think I really reached my true goal tonight which was to keep that feeling throughout..
Maybe it's just too big a step. Next time I'll aim for something smaller.
Other than our semi-moonlight ride, we managed to get a pre-ride cuddle session squeezed in. He was hanging out in his usual corner and shuffled up looking for a treat...of course. It was so peaceful just stroking his neck and telling him what a handsome boy he is (which he adores btw). Maybe Thursday will be a cuddle and compliment session!
