So I posted a video of Finny and I a couple weeks ago. I got a lot of responses saying that I was pumping too much, which I definitely agree with. I have been working really hard on be a lot quieter in the saddle, so I hope the video reflects that. I've added polo wraps and a martingale to his riding routine. I think the martingale has really helped with his head placement, as his head definitely looks more "dressage-y" to me. I have veered away from jumping currently because I've noticed that I should master all gaits in the flat before going over an obstacle... Plus, I've come to realize that the small dressage exercises I've been working him with have really improved his behavior because, as I said, he is a lot more relaxed.
Anyways, the footage in this video was taken 6 days ago. I feel like even in the short time of posting my last video, I've improved. Hopefully, some of you will feel the same way.
Finn has been really sound lately and not as "greenishly" hyper as he used to be. Please critique both him and I in an informative way; please don't be rude.
BTW, this video was put on YouTube as a entertainment video, so that's why there is Pop music to it:)
