Ok so I have a 14.2 new forest pony called Rascal. I've had him for coming up 2 years now and when I got him he was completely unschooled. I've had him at various yards and my last one was dressage yard where I worked for lessons I stayed there for about a year before deciding we weren't really improving and found a new yard. Now this yard has two people who event and both are extremely knowledgable one of them offered to give me lessons if I helped him at competitions. This was my first lesson today and it was so amazing!! I have never got Rascal to work in a proper outline as I'd never really done it before and neither had he and I was beginning to think it was some kind of cryptic thing everyone but me could do. But today Matt explained it in such a way I just got it! It was the most amazing feeling to be able to feel him go soft in my hands and start to come round and over his back it was so good I have a couple of pictures but bear in mind that this was a first for both of us! I just wanted to share this because I'm so happy and anyone else having difficulties with this kind of thing, don't worry! You just need it explained in the right way and actually, it's pretty easy!!
So here me and Rascal earlier today:
