Working on some transitions from the walk to trot and canter will also help. But remember that it has been a long time and you both looked great considering all that...
I think you both look great together...
You just made my day by calling my stubby legs long! :) Guess that means Buddy is a good size for me. He's a real sweetie. He's being leased by a girl at the barn where I ride, but my instructor also gets to use him a couple times a week for lessons and that is when I get to ride him. He reminds me a lot of a bigger version of the large pony I had as a kid.
Working the dressage stuff is all still new to me and it still feels really odd for me to have longer stirrups, even for on the flat. But I'm going to get to do some dressage lessons on a horse with more dressage experience over the next few weeks, maybe even working in a dressage saddle, so hopefully that will help me to get a better feel for it.
Thanks for the input. :)
