At Long Last!

I won the battle! So finally, after much struggle and strong language used by yours truly, here's the vid of me and Monkey in the show!

I am soooo proud of both of you..

You made the show look so easy...But
I remember all the bruises and sore spots you had that day.
Thanx for sharing the video, I know you went to a lot of work on this.
But you did a great job, both with the horse and the video, sorry the program that came with the camcorder didn't work for you.

Love ya

Well DONE, you too! I'm proud of you, too. You look stately in the saddle, my dear! Monkey was on good behaviour, too, wasn't he? Good boy!

Aw, that's cool. He got his leads too! Good for you, girl!

Looks great. Seems like you're getting a nice stop on him. Keep up the good work.

Thanks guys!

Kate- He missed the lead coming out of the last roll back but I'm entirely willing to blame that on myself, considering I really wasn't riding my best that day, due to hurting like hell every time he twitched lol.

Phlegmmy- Stately? That's how I look when it hurts to sit deeper in the saddle, LOL!

Horse Prof- He's getting an ok stop consistently, and a fantastic one rarely. He's got really nice stops in him, he just doesn't always want to give them, but that's just gonna take time. What I'm really proud of that shows up really well on the video is the way he was coming over himself in front on the pivot, and holding that hip. We struggled with holding the hip on pivots for quite a while, but once he got it, he got it.
