Just some backround: Some things we are working on are my postition over the jump, LEAD CHANGES, correct striding to the jump, my horses collection, and most of all...STAYING STRAIGHT!
I'm basically looking for exercises I will be able to try in my free time. In lessons, we get some dressage work, but usually they are exercises I need to work on under istruction, or else I'm not sure about what I'm doing. So just some basic exercises I can work on while hacking, anythhing you guys have personally found beneficial or that would help with the above problems. As stated above, our number one problem is staying straight, where that might sound simple, it's an important problem. I'm positive that once our straightness problem is corrected, a lot of our other problems will follow through, after all, straightness is one of THE most important things to riding.
Thanks in advance, I'm hoping dressage will strengthen me and my horse's ability! =]
