Starting Dressage Soon, Any Tips?
So today I had a dressage lesson because there were no jumps to be found (sigh). Anyways, I actually really liked it! It was very fun to do, and my horse seemed to be pretty good at it too! There are a couple of things that we do need to work on before we do any shows though. I was wondering if I could get a few tips and bits of advice?
1. Circles. Can someone tell me the difference between a 10 meter and a 20 meter? Obviously one is bigger, but how do I know weather I'm doing a 10 meter or a 20 meter?
2. Free walk (across diagonal). How do I keep him straighter and keep his head down?
3. Pretty Headset. I'm only going to be doing lower level tests, but I would still like to see an improvement in Jerry's headset. He holds his head high with his nose in the air, and will only relax sometimes. Any tips?
