Sorry, what you are describing sky, is not a half pass. It is a counter bent LY.
Can you SI? Required for a HP. Can you travers? Renvers? Also things needed in a half pass.
Also, unless your coach has taught you what a correct HP is and gone through all the theory with you, don't attempt it. You are obviously confusing the horse and neither you or the horse are ready. It is not "a different way of moving" it is a mid level dressage exercise requiring a great deal of collection and submission to the aids. Dressage is not a sequence of tricks.
Anyways, just finished my last clinic before heading to the coast next week. Worked a lot on straightness with the kiddo, working towards second level. So we'll see I registered in one test on the Sunday of the second show (June 30).
My guy is going just fantastically it actually hurts how well he's going. Practiced the I1 zig zag, pirouettes and tempis and all are good to go for the show. Now its just amping up the collection another half notch on the dial. The trot is getting really fantastic
not looking forward to riding in 80 degree temps in a wool coat though... talk about a sweat fest...
But, anyways. Last vacs are getting done tomorrow, packing for the 3 weeks is starting, and there's still a big focus on training, especially once I get over this **** flu.. Posted via Mobile Device
