Saturday I just did a little hack around the property, easing back into it!
Sunday - I rode Cupid in the outdoor arena. I put my German martingale on, in case he got used to how my trainer rides him with a steadier contact! He was very good. I tried to focus on keeping my leg long, and also making sure he was nice and forward, and working on bending, some serpentines, and leg yields. We cantered a bit each direction, doing the easier side (right) first. I ended with taking the martingale off and doing some stretchy trot. We did have 2 spooks, once at a horse walking on the path below the arena and the second time I couldn't tell why but luckily they weren't too bad.
We took Monday off, and had a lesson on Tuesday. Cupid felt fantastic! At first I thought he might be a little footsore, but realized he was just using himself a little better which to me translated to feeling like he is lighter on his feet! The jumps were all removed form the arena (just a few standards and poles piles), so we had plenty of room. My trainer took some video clips, and I realized I need to work on keeping my hands lower and elbows more bent.
