Dressage test practice

Next weekend I'm dragging my butt to our first show this year. My coach won't be there, so last week when I rode with her we practiced our test.
It's 4th level test 2.


Wish me luck!

Work on your timing for changes. Your horse is being generous, but you are going to run into trouble for sure in the 2's. What a nice horse and super breeding. Do you own this one? Get that extra polish you need at the fix-a-test (I assume that's what the clinic is) and you'll be good to go. Best of luck to you both!

Thanks for the support everyone! I will definitely be posting our results up here :P

EA - I rode this through with my coach for a reason - this is not in the critique section for a reason. I trust her opinion and judgement and my horse and I are working towards our goals with her, not randoms on the internet :)
But thank you for your opinion.

I have to be honest anebel. I now hate you just a little bit. I wish I could ride like that :(

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

So you guys already have a spring in Canada? It's a mess here still (and we are way on south)... I didn't even start riding.

In any case best luck at the show!

Bahahahahaha! Well, at least you probably don't have 90-100F + 100% humidity in summer!

We have 60 today (with rain)!
