    How are we going? Your opinion?

    Hi guys,

    I have a few photos of my and curly's outing today.

    She is coming into work after 7 weeks off sick.

    How are we looking?

    The things I see is that she is tracking up and jumping into her canter but I could be wrong so would love some opinions!

    She hasnt got her head in a nice headset yet but we are focusing on getting her using her body correctly first.

    I havent had any lessons since before she got sick due to my instructor being ill but hopefully will have one soon.

    She looks like she's going to be in danger of over reaching with her hinds.

    But other than that, she looks good! Not as relaxed though, but that will come back in time :)

    The relaxed thing was partly because we were not at home and riding with 6 other horses from a Shetland to a Clydesdale!

    How would she over-reach and why?

    Well she's really reaching under herself, mainly at the trot which is great but see how her hind leg is almost kicking the bottom of her front one? Could be something in the trimming or her working through something.

    It's just my observation. I could be off kilter because otherwise she and you both look pretty fabulous.

    I'm new and not familiar with your story, but I think you guys are off to a great start. I would say that your hands are too low, there isn't a straight line from your elbow to her mouth. I would also bring your elbow back so that your upper arm hangs straight down from your shoulder instead of being pulled forward a little.

    Are her toes long on her front feet? If she isn't getting them out of the way in time for the hind feet to get to that same spot, her breakover isn't in the right place.
