    I am a hunter/jumper, but in lessons we do do some dressage with our flatwork. & it is very very helpful. I think any discipline should use at least a bit of dressage in their training, because it's important!
    Lately I've been working on some leg yielding & sidepassing -going well! Maverick is doing much better, I had to use a bit more leg pressure.
    We also did some turns on the forehand, which are good. I am not by any means a dressage professional, but it really does help with your riding & suppleness. Anyone should give dressage a try.

    I'm trying to get me and my horse and me fit again. In the winter we had to take two months off, because of a cough that just woudn't go away... Anyway starting to really work now. First show isn't comming intill 3 weeks from now, but we still have alot to do. I really do!
    I rode two horses almost everyday even when my horse was sick but it's just not the same. I noticed the first time I worked with her again I was totally dead after half an hour!
    So yeah, working on our extending trot. She does it beautifully if I can manage to sit still and give a bit extra drive.. sadly my legs don't always work the way I want them too!
    I hope to start working on some counter canter pretty soon. So very busy dressaging away!
    But we've had great weather this week, so I'm going hacking pretty often.. I think it helps alot to go on a hack atleast once a week.. builds up muscel and is fun for the horse and me!

    Lately I have been working on getting my horse to come into a frame. He'll get it for a few strides and then it falls apart. This has been a real challenge for us so if you have any tips that would be great.

    Also, we have been working on flying changes and it's been going really well. Usually he only does them going around a course of jumps but now he'll do them across the diagonal too.

    Yesterday, a horse at my barn died! The owner was walking it and it lied down/fell over, started twitching and died. The vet said it was a heart attack, but still it's really freaky!!

    I also have a dressage clinic this weekend, wish me luck :P

    Oh man! I didnt know they could have heart attacks. How old was the horse, that's so sad. I would hate to see my horse go like that. Sorry for the barns loss.

    Good luck at the clinic!

    Horseoffire - have you gotten the vet out??

    The horse was like 12. It was so weird and they couldn't get the wagon out for like three days so he was just outside in a tarp. It was really sad!

    Thanks the clinic went really well, I'm going to see how my poor boy is holding up today and feed him carrots :P He stepped on my foot Saturday night on the way home. Thank goodness he doesn't have shoes on!! My foot is just purple and most of the swelling is gone.
