haha this is funny, because yesturday, rena did NOT want to pick up the right canter, because I was askign her to pick it up while she waas a littl more 'through' her body. Haha she threw in a few bucks/crow hops. I just sat deep and asked her to walk and we would do it again, rena has her opinion, its a 50/50 relationsship. We work together, but do you think, if there was two mountain climbing partners tied together (because their in a huge blizzard) that the more experienced one is going to say: 'oh, its ok, he's jsut showing off!' while the other guy is jumping around on thin ice???? No. A partnership is about them BOTH putting in equal effort and trusting eachother. I wont accept my partnerleaping and being UNRELIABLE. But I don't expect her to be good when im not 100% with her either. I just had to add my 0.02 on this thread, haha just to let y'all know what I think partnership is, and that I do know a lot of dressage riders who DO excpect their hroses to be robots.... but I know a lot that don't, :) beautiful horses in the vid!
If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.
