Next year for the SANEF shows, we are going to enter dressage as well as jumping. It'll not only be great fun, but great experience and good training for the horses.
Love Story has had very little dressage training, and since I am also very new to it, we deffinitly WONT be doing anything major lol. Anyway...
We had our first dressage lesson, and we worked on getting them onto the bit. Love has never done it in her life, but she was quite amazing. I got her onto the bit for two whole strides, which is an achievement, and my instructer got her onto the bit at halt, a bit at walk, and half the arena at trot. Im very proud of her. She is very lazy though, and moves sluggishly, so I am going to use a dressage whip, which of course will only be used when strictly nessecary.
I just wanted to share our first lesson, and ask for advice on how I can improve myself and Love regarding dressage?
