apologies to Nina

hey, she speaks English, she might be reading this blog.
I have been trying to set a routine for our rides. Lunge for a few minutes, walk around on the rail at least one lap, then ask for a trot, trot at least one lap and then start asking her to work a little, bend, a little lateral etc. She doesn't need variety, she needs to know what is coming up next and that is it nothing to worry about.
Yesterday I was hot and tired when I got on and within about 10 steps I was hustling her along and demanding that she trot. Horses much more tolerant than she is would have been ticked off. *sigh* Well, at least she is learning to be a little forgiving.
