Well, it'd be cool if I saw you there! You ride so well and have so many great tips, so it'd be great to be able to meet you and watch you ride!
Onuilmar, I know, I'm not offended. Iowa, especially around here, has little English, much less eventing. But I'm going to Iowa State next fall and there's 3 trainers down there. Hopefully I can take Casper, but I don't know yet.
Thoughts on Airowear Outlyne? It's the cheapest so far and comes in navy. Plus, it's sizing sounds about right for me - I'm a T2 Slim lol. I looked into Rodney Powell too but the only place I can find one is Smarkpak, and only in black. I know black absorbs heat like no other, so I'm hoping by getting navy that will help a bit (plus, navy/blue is my color and my horse's). I don't want to spend the extra $40 for custom coloring.
What are some flexing exercises I can do with Casper? He's pretty responsive to my leg as far as going forward, but is really not responsive about lateral work. What are some exercises to help improve that? With Rusty, we did shoulder-ins and shoulder-outs, but I think Casper needs some flexing before working on that yet. Doesn't help he's outta shape.
