Lesson on Grace today

My dad got a couple pictures of us today. An amazing lesson!

Excuse my starnge faces of concentration . . .


No crit, I know we aren't perfect, and as a friend once told me, pictures only tell part of the story.

Well as always I love you two and you make the perfect pair so there is no way that I am going to critique! Is that your indoor arena!? It reminds me of a tent haha! I am constantly stalking your threads for new Gracie photos haha!

A few things I see:

Toes forward, girly! You're turning your whole leg out by letting your toes point out. Bring your hands up above her withers and make sure you keep your thumbs on top....I have the same problem with the occasional piano hands.

Can't tell much else from the pictures, but you two make a great team!

I did say no crit, but thanks. I heard from an olympian that toes forward is drilled in too much and it is not important, so I guess I have not been paing as much attention to it.

And those piano hands...one of my worst habits. We were doing an exercise and that is why my hands are so low.
