1 1/2 years later...

Chloe and I shortly before starting dressage lessons:
By the way, the way she is going in this picture was considered a huge amazing improvement at the time. She would hold her head literally as high as she could in all gaits not long before this picture was taken.

Taken today:

Pretty much the same timing/pose in her stride... but look at how much bigger her steps have gotten! She's actually reaching and using her hind end!

Anyways, I just thought I'd share. It's pretty cool to look back on old photographs and see just how far you've gotten in your training!

Let's see your horse's improvement in dressage!

Wow! Thanks! I've just started some dressage with Danny to try to help him engage his hind and learn to carry himself a bit better. That gives me hope for us!!

Smart people listen. Not so smart people think they do not need to hear what others have to say.
