How do we look?

Tiffany & I. She is such a lazy girl, I am CONSTANTLY pushing her into her face. It feels like an absolute mess (it's hard work!) but I am presently surprised by how "pretty" we look :)

I will hopefully get a video of us at the show this weekend and you all can see how amazing she works in the kimberwicke. In the video she's in a Springsteen.

I'm working on the leaning forward thing, its become a habit as of late!

And I should add: hand gallop = FAIL. I'm working on it. I felt like I was leaning MUCH farther and actually speeding up. HA!

You guys look great! You must be working your butt off because she doesn't look lazy to me. She's nice and forward almost to the point of rushing. She is supple, working over her back and is reaching nicely into the contact. I bet she scores very well in dressage tests.

If you don't already do this, she looks like she would benefit from transitions within gaits, mostly the trot. Pick specific parts of your arena and work on keeping the tempo of the trot the same, but shortening and lengthening her frame.

I'm at work right now, but will blab more later when things calm down.

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

Lol, I've never shown her in dressage but that'd be fun! :)
She did well in our show, she's a totally new horse in the arena. I actually had to slow her down instead of constantly bugging her for more drive ;)

She's an awesome horse, She saved my butt once because I rushed into a canter and she allllmost picked up the wrong lead but figured it out.

Yeah, its so crazy that I don't see me working in the video, but I think I remember really working her. Lol.
