    He's always been mine? Paying him off was a chore lol but that's why one drives a mine truck for a ludicrous amount of money haha.

    He still looks like the same little baby horse to me <3

    We are still working on trot-canter transitions. The upward transitions are starting to look textbook (smooth, deliberate, remaining balanced). Downward transitions are still ugly as sin. My core still isn't strong enough to bring him down slowly but I'm starting a 24 day ab workout challenge that should help with that.

    I'm very excited. The 4yr old stallion is progressing leaps and bounds. His canter was just phenomenal, uphill, balanced, and collected. I'm so excited for this boys future!!

    My mare and I are working on getting our changes and half pass. We have moments where she's a little late behind if I don't have my s*** together, but the racehorse rush after the change has now gone, so very happy!

    With the Friesian I am working on getting his weight down! He's so much of a land whale that neither of his saddles fit him, so lots of in hand work and riding bareback.

    Well Reeco will be coming back into work today after over a month off (due to me having a car crash) we are supposed to be attending a dressage clinic with a top trainer next saturday so we shall see how that goes, I expect to be torn to shreds and absoolutly exhausted afterwards but hopefuly with a much much better schooled pony!

    Working on consistency of gait. Leg yields with floppy ears (relaxed), more impulsion, and me sitting straight.

    More of this:



    And less of these:



    Our best is far from perfect but a long way improved on where we've come from. We have a long way still to go but she's 3 and I'm not a dressage person so that we've come this far amazes me!

    Wow, just wow is all I can say!

    The last 2 lessons my trainer really had us work on getting the feeling of a nice lifted frame. Interspersed throughout the lesson we'd soften and drive forward. Cloud has been a totally different horse since we've started that! Schooling at home, his trot lofty and his leg yeilds are immediate, we feel so balanced and ready to take on the world I can't beleive my little baby horse is working like the older 2. Its just marvelous, im so happy just had to share :)

    Yesterday I worked on staying on! Bloody big old man Kangaroo decided to cut across the arena last night and my mare felt that was just all too much and had to leave, at pace, back the way we came from.

    But at the moment we are working on counter canter, walk-canter-walk transitions and renvers. Renvers has me stumped. I get how it looks, I understand the bend, the number of tracks, etc, I just can't quite work out how the movement would actually start in a dressage test. At the moment I am riding a shoulder-in for a couple of steps then increasing the angle and changing the bend, but I'll be buggered if I can work out how I would ride the movement in an actual test situation.
