I have a 17 year old Paint mare that was basically western pleasure in breed shows until she was about 6, then pretty much sat in a pasture until two years ago when I got her. I was brought in to get her back in shape physically and mentally to be re-sold. A few months later, I bought her. =]
So ever since, I've been teaching her dressage. At least how to collect and bend and be straight and to do circles, etc etc. I'm nothing fancy, I don't go to shows, I don't even have a real arena, but I LOVE working with her. She's my greatest dancing partner.
As of now, she can walk, trot, and canter collected and extended, she is very much on the bit, even if she is heavy on the forehand, [we're working on it!] I taught her to side step, or half pass or whatever. She can move to the side, and remain mostly straight. After a while I started working on leg yields at the walk and she is doing gloriously. I started teaching her a haunches in and she took to it like a fish to water.
I was just wondering what other things we can work on. I know we can simply step it up and move on to the things we already know at a trot, but I'm thinking for further in the future, what are things I can eventually teach her? What goals can we strive for? And if you could also try and explain how to execute a particular move that would be great. Videos are nice to see the finished product, as well.
And just for fun, a few of my favorite pictures with my girl. =]]
