Talking Hopefully a sportymare :-)

SO this a new mare I lease now:)

She is warmblood, sire Carismo (holstein warmblood), dam half-thoroughbred.

She is fresh 7 yo,but not ridden almost at all untilthis spring, just a few trail rides few times in a month.

We are starting to train a bit dressage, and also jumping-with her owner- I must firstly learn to sit peacefully, then we can jump

I secretly hope I could so some lower competitions with her in some time, mostly dressage, I find it better then jumping.

So this is her :)




-she just didn't want to stay

She looks lovely! Also I love the purple saddle pad/polo wrap combo. I use the same thing on my dark bay TB gelding (sometimes we do pink, too ).

My one piece of advice would be to try to look up more. In 3/4 under saddle pictures, you are looking down at the ground or at the horse. I have a bad habit of doing this too. My trainer always tells me to look where you want to go! I try to pick a point in the distance (But still in our line of travel) and focus on that. It helps prevent me from looking down at my horse. =)

He does look nice in purple. And definitely sporty. I love warmbloods in general so you got a wonderful horse there to work with!

I like your leg. You seem to be keeping it steady and nice. Something I need training with a lot at the moment.
I also think you should look up more. It will help you straighten better and give better overall look as well. Also close your fingers and maybe raise up those hands a little bit. One thing you could do is wear gloves. It helped me with my hands a lot but it also depends on personal preferences.

Tanks, she has quite good jumping line in her blood and is very talented and soft in hands. Too bad I cannot use all that because I am still learning :( Maybe in future....

My leg just seems quiet, I hope to get a video this sunday... But thing is, that since I got these joint stirrups and shortened my leathers for a hole ( my knees hurt after riding in these leathers, but I got these jointed stirrups and it doesnt hurt aymore), I feel my legs are more solid and I have more control over them, which is nice.

I look down ALL THE TIME :( I check on wchich leg I rise, o which she canters on,..... I miss the trainer now so much :( But I believe it will get better once she trains me :)

I also do ride in gloves sometimes, but sometimes not... depends on God-knows-what... the thing is I don't have anyproblem with her pulling to the reins, so I don't NEED them, as I did in first few weeks together with her. And I wear them when my nails get too long ( I got gel nails and they get kind of long for me to ride in a week before getting new ones, so I wear the gloves, so I don't break them)

And tanks for good compliments :)

Beautiful horse. Close your hands, thumbs up, elbows soft and following.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
