By the way, Madeline was so pumped after her last lesson, feeling very confident that she succeeded in controlling Kahn (sp?) to not trot and then to trot when she needed him to. It was a big stressor of hers prior to arriving on Sat. She did not want to ride at all and definately did not want that horse. I was proud to see her overcome her fears and face her challenges. She talked about how great it was all the way home and then has wanted to show everyone how she can trot on
her horse. It was a big fear that is now overcome thanks to you. I am very thankful for your amazing skill with kids and horses (not to mention adults too). I hope she will share her success with you when you see her on Saturday and maybe build on it a little.
Thanks again! Christine
