Mazzy's training is coming along well. Some days are diamonds, some days are stones. She had several really good days in a row and my trainer popped her over a crossrail, she was completely unfazed. I almost wish she was a little more impressed with the jump, but I am happy she is so calm.
Every horse has one side that is better than the other, just like humans. For a horse, a preference for one side means that he can bend in that direction more easily, his balance is better when turning in that direction, he finds it easier to pick up that lead in canter, and he is just generally better at everything on his preferred side. Mazzy's is definitely the left, so I am constantly working on softening up her right side, and trying to build her strength so she can hold herself up that way.
