Well the lesson was absolutley wonderful. I did get video but Seana was not sitting near the camera so you cannot hear her instructions...
So....I had previously had some trouble getting the correct canter lead on Bear especially tracking left. Seana really wanted to see if she could help me with this issue.
She got on and schooled Bear first to see what he is like. (she has never ridden him. Then she came to the mounting block and explained what she felt was going on with his body and how I needed to ride him to get the correct lead. The way she explained things totally made sense! And....Wall-ahhhhhhhhh I got the correct leads both directions.
She also noticed something going on with the position of my hips and she explained how my left hip was just a tad more forward all the time...thus pushing Bears shoulder out (tracking left) and his haunches in. She explained how to correct this funny body position I was having and low and behold I had a light bulb moment.
Another thing we did that I have not previously done with my other instructor was a type of stretchy trot where I can really allow Bear to stretch his neck and head way down. I loved it....It was totally awesome.
Seana explained how she felt both myself and my other instructo have done a wonderful job with this Haffie. Especially considering what he was like in the begining. He was taught to canter and gallop with his his head reaching down and very very fast...barreling through anything and everything.
She commented on how good he felt and how on the mark he seems to be with everything we have worked on. He is a lesson horse, but his owner has given me permission to ride him anytime. I have been his primary rider since the end of Dec. With my other instructor only getting on him every once in a while not on a regular basis.
Here is a piece of video from our lesson. I will try to up load a different one later... Dressage Lesson with Seana! Video by Steener_421 - Photobucket
Not sure if I would feel comfortable doing so but I was told I should have no problem being able to doing training level test 1 and 2 in the June 12th 13th show, but right now I am planning on Intro a and b.
