Hattie the Haflinger and I are thinking of doing our first Novice test (maybe No.27 British dressage). Other than the need for a more steady and even contact and softer canter (all of which we are working on), we also need to be able to show a few steps of Medium trot so I had a go today at asking for this. I haven't had a chance to go through this with my instructor so I expect I've made some huge errors, but I thought I 'd ask for your views and help
Here were a couple of attempts (slowed down so I could see what I was doing). Stopping her rushing will be one issue which I try to do by making my rise bigger and clearer. Anyway, how I can I improve?
