New Long Lines
Bought some new long lines. Well rope anyways. I chose 3/8's so they are not so heavy for my arms and 18' so they are not so long. When I tried them out, they kept coming undone. I also kept letting the rope drag as my arms were killing me, so she kept stepping over them....her favorite game. But nonetheless we persevered and practiced weaving at a trot. We did well for the first time on that pattern at a trot. 1 down and 6 to go. I went and bought snaps, that will help. And I am gonna dig out the surcingle. I suppose I have a disability for now, and besides, the great classical dressage masters use surcingles, so I won't put myself down for that. Now I just have to find the dang thing.
