Hi, I've had 8 dressage lessons in total 7 on this horse & one on one of the other schoolmasters.
My trainer is great & said that things will start to come together, and they are, just very slowly - there is just so much to learn... & it's extreme multi tasking!
It's also frustrating not being good at something automatically, don't get me wrong though, its a really great challenge & I can't wait to start progressing through the levels.
DuffyDuck, your right, she is very refined & sensitive, she does exactly what you ask for, she definitely shows the riders flaws. And right now im asking for, wobbly, dog boning & "yep, I don't know what I'm doing, please take advantage" & so on haha.
I'm frustrating her in some lessons with my confusion, but I guess theres a bit of frustration from all parties involved when someones learning a new skill.
I have some fleeting moments of how things should be going & i'm sure that the more lessons I have the more of those "moments" will happen & it should all come together *fingers crossed*
I do feel very lucky to be learning at such a top class facility with the best trainers & horses. I'm really glad I've invested the money I had saved for a horse into these lessons. I'm learning so much.
Thanks for the replies
