Lesson went WAY better today apparantly :) I couldn't get a video as the camera went dead unfortunatly but thats the way of things isn't it when you want them they aren't there >:(
Rhos was messing around a bit on the right rein and while that didn't feel so good I am assured it looked fine. We weren't doing anything fancy just prelim level stuff but he did it really well. My mum said that when he was showing we all ways had Rhos going low and covering loads of ground even if that meant he was on his forehand, but today he was right in the centre perfectly balanced. His canter improved masses (before he was all ways breaking as he was unbalanced and on the forehand).
Shame I didn't get a video because I could have shown you a comparison from before and after. However he did say he was going to try and come back to Ireland every month which would be fantastic as he is cheaper than Heike but every bit as good (for me any way). If he did come over I would be able to get a monthly lesson and hopefully keep on improving :)
CandyCanes, if you want I can give you the number as he is cheaper than Heike, if you want to give him a go and then decide who is better for your style of riding and for your horse. I know you are just starting dressage too but he does all levels of dressage and helps with flatwork for jumping if you ever got interested in eventing again. He used to show jump before he had his leg amputated, and still wanted to jump but decide to give dressage a go first and he got hooked!
