Christine's Riding Page

September 1, 2002

Christine continues to ride Spirit in her lessons.   She is progressing towards getting off the lunge line.  Today,  she circled the entire arena on her own at a walk!   Helga sent her on her way and we all watched as she made it all the way around without any assistance.   Spirit was an absolute prince.   I've been very impressed with how well behaved he is with Christine.   He sure knows how to take care of his girls.

Christine rode Ace (Kaitie's pony) in the lead-line class at the Evergreen Classic.   She was very excited about the first place ribbon that all the participants received.

Christine has inherited Jacquie's old show coat.  She absolutely loves it and had to show it off during her lesson this week.

Christine - sporting her new chaps from her friend Katie - rode Gremlin again today.  She practiced posting with no hands!   She did a great job.

Christine had her first riding lesson today at Gold Creek Equestrian Center.   She looked incredibly cute in Jacquie's old riding pants/fleece and her new boots and helmet.  She had a great time grooming and riding Snowflake and says she is ready to start taking lessons on a regular basis.
