Holy Smokes, Oliver's before and after shot!

Okay SO I got no sleep last night and was playing around and found an old.....awful photo..... haha but its purpose now is to show how far we have come....

The first photo was from winter with my original trainer.... The second is from yesterdays ride!

We are transitioning from front engine drive to rear engine drive

What do you think?!
(I know my leg in yesterdays photo is cramped forward and we will be correcting that ASAP!)

Two years ago I had no dressage saddle, I was borrowing a put together bridle, I was pinching so bad with my knees, fighting with Oliver....it was a hot mess and my trainer just kept plucking away with us and I kept on doing my HW, went
to clinics watched, rode in many clinics and learned so much.

Blood sweat and tears got me hear!

I am beyond excited to do another comparison photo at the end of the summer!
