Only had 30 minutes to ride so I hopped on and w/t/c.
Note: Normally my stirrups are longer and my heels stay anchored. When my stirrups are longer my leg is more underneath me.
I also rode in a friend's boots as I forgot mine, they were terrible and a bit too small, so my equitation is a bit off.
Jesse and Zu.
Just walking around.
Letting him stretch.
Ha ha I was about to fix my stirrups, did two-point work so I put them up a hole or two.
Was cantering on a long-ish rein. Canter to trot, dumping on the forehand.
We need to work on it.
The sun came out for a moment!
More canter, and UGH, I'm leaning.
Asked him to check his stride and collect a bit, he wasn't appreciative.
His protests of my decision to go back to a trot. (He came back fine, just had to let me know that he wanted to keep cantering.)
Too close to Jesse, ha ha. My hands are a bit too low.
More in next post...
