You can only travel smooth for so long before you have to over come another block in the road. I find these are now giving me more of a fire in my belly to succeed. Pushing through the fear and just listening. Not feeling very strong and a little short of breath with a cold I find myself with the concept of a group trot passenger lesson. At first I sit it out thinking to myself. Then I realize that the opportunity is too much to pass up. Gulliver and I really need this. He is always more connected to a group or to what others are doing and this is one of my fears as I am still not protecting him properly in these situations which is probably why he is still so sensitive in these situations. We pushed through and I feel I so much better.
I know I am still leaning forward too much so this is going to be my own physical challenge to strengthen my back to hold the right position for Gulliver. I must make things so hard for him sometimes. So great full to my big hearted forgiving lug.
