Coffeemama, I am glad that I made sense enough for you to understand my description of the "Functional Two Point"! Give it a whirl, when done correctly, you'll see and feel the difference.

It took me the majority of the time to get it right, but then when the light bulb came on, it make perfect sense.

Stormy, Jim is coming in March to give a 2 day clinic. The farm that will be hosting him, is an hour away. The clinic is $325 for a 2 day lesson with him, and that incudes a stall for the night.

I figure, I can save pennies from now till then to beable to do it. Problem is, I do not have my own truck or trailer to haul Nelson - so I'd have to depend on someone else to get us there, and that is such an inconvenience.

Chingaz, I am so sorry to hear the news :( Just stick to what Eventerdrew said, and you'll get there. *Hugs*

MIE,
Good for you! How exciting to get started with a new coach and have such passion for what your learning.
I am not to that point yet, but have had some really great lessons this week.
Good for you!

MIE- DEF try to go! He is an amazing speaker, has GREAT SJ exercises, and really focuses on getting your horse to come up under you, and being able to shorten and lengthan and all that jazz while you are up in galloping position or in half seat. He really is great!

Thanks MIE, sorry to steal your thread but, I found a friend, who is an eventer who is willing to teach me. She's knows her stuff to. So hopefully I'll finally have someone to help.

That's awesome MIE!

"I had to take quite a few breaks just to beable to catch my breath. I never had a coach do that with me. "

^ Oh god do I know what you're talking about. I need at least two "omg i'm dying, hold on a second" breaks during the winter, and MUCH more during the summer, ha ha. Even when I use my inhaler before my ride. XD

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it

LOL! It was rough! But I need it, especially for Eventing because I really do need to be in just as good of condition as Nelson *meaning, heart and lung capacity and stamina*

I have to do exercises in the saddle as well - and oh my gosh! KILLER!

1) While in the saddle, start with your right leg and kick it back 50 times. Meaning, bend your knee push your foot back towards your horses butt. Then move to your left leg.

OUCH! My right butt cheek, and the muscles over my hip, screamed bloody murder, and I had quite a few muscle spasims at first.

2) While in the saddle, start with your right leg, and lift it directly off of your horses side in an outward motion. Almost like you are swinging your legs out to kick your horses side for not listening to your aids. Just during this one, you are not touching your horses side on the downard motion. Now do it on your left side.

50x each side.

Again - OUCH!

3) While in the saddle lift both knees up to your chest. Do this 50 times.

Eesh....she says she has more...not looking forward to that one.

OH! And I have to do 50 sit up's a night at home. That's my "homework"

lol, I thought I was doing it inconspicuously. I would slow down to a walk and start asking her questions. LOL. And then I would start talking to extend the answers to my questions.

She eventually caught on.

Dang. >.<

Thanks Darling! You'll get there, and when you do, you'll want more and more and more. I am super excited for when your mare gets home! I cannot wait to see and hear about her progress.

Alright! Great to hear! I will try to get to that point financially and see if I can find a ride. I am sure that there are local Pony Clubbers who'll attend, I am sure I can get a ride with one of them.

Thanks for the info!

Yay for awesome trainers! They deserve like... medals of honor.

Not having a truck or trailer is a huge hassle (actually so is not having a license xD). It really limits (at least me) who you can train with. It'd be so nice to board somewhere close by and trailer out for lessons - so many people aren't willing to travel :(
