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.
