It wasn't bad, but it was far from great. She got a bee in her bonnet about one of the arena long sides, I have no idea what she could hear or see that I was missing, so we had a few discussions as to her not being a crossbreed llama/giraffe and finished on a decent note.

Again I couldn't really be mad at her as she has had so little saddle time - to say we are both rusty is an understatement. Perhaps my forgetting to use the quarter sheet didn't help, but it wasn't so cold that she could get away with sidestepping away from the sides when it suited her to be all eyes-on-stalks.
We stuck to walk/trot/halt transitions with lots of bending thrown in. I may have been hoping to make us both dizzy so we would forget the monsters hiding around the arena.

We got some nice work between shenanigans, and there was no nastyness in she was just wholly distracted. We all have these days so I'll file it away & hope for better next time. ☺
