Today it rained, and the Dressage arena was kind of wet. So we went into the big pen to work on my loosening up a little bit. I ride very huntery I guess, everything is tight.
I want to pull my legs back, hold my hands in a little box and not move them.
So she was really working on getting me to get my hands outside my comfort zone and pull my legs forward a little bit.
I know I need to work on my lower leg, and my hands need to work independently of my body. I also need to work on getting him working forward more, my leg strength is definitely going to improve this winter . And I'm posting too much I think ahha. Oh well.
You guys are free to make some suggestions if you like I'm so used to a short strided little QH not a big strided Warmblood. I'm having so much fun though, it's challenging which is great!
Oh btw the horses name is Le Gallo, he's trained up to 4th level I think. He's so patient with my ummm suckyness I guess would be the correct term.
What do you think? Can a dressage rider be made out of me?
