Hi Emily,
I just wanted to tell you that Gypsy and I had a wonderful ride today.  I went out early and spent about 1 1/2 hours with her on the trail.  I honestly felt that this was the first time that I was completely at ease with her the entire time.  She was the most relaxed that I have experienced when it was just the 2 of us.  I felt like we were partners! 
I was able to concentrate on the things that I have been learning in my lessons and felt that things were coming together more than they have in the past.  I also noticed that Gypsy was making progress with being on the bit.  Still a ways to go, but I feel very hopeful.
I really do love my horse and she has been such a blessing to me over these many years.  I gave her a beauty treatment when we got back and she really enjoyed that.  She thanked me by rolling in the grass and not the dirt.
Have a great weekend.  Thanks for everything.

I wanted to say thank you again for another thought provoking lesson on Josh. I really enjoy my lessons with you.
I am so hoping we can get you up to Lemaliza. I can't wait to have lessons with you on Maestro. He is a special horse and you are a special teacher. As the quote says, " when the student is ready, the teacher will come."

I will be practicing. I took notes on my phone as soon as I got off. :)

All the Best,
Karen Diller
