Grady and I had our first show EVER as a team this weekend! We attended an mini-trial at the Pony Club near where we board and had a pretty good time. I don't know if we'll continue with eventing, but I had a lot of fun and wanted to see how Grady would do in a show enviroment.
Anyway, other than my nerves and the fact that some idiot decided to start up a tractor that backfired in the middle of my dressage test, spooking Grady off course, the notes on my score sheet said that Grady was "too lazy," and I needed to "track-up." I saw the phrase "track-up" alot. Ultimately my Impulsion scores were low stating my horse was lazy.
What does track up mean?
Does it mean, go faster? Move forward on the forehand? Less speed, larger strides? I'm not 100% sure!
