had an AMAZING dressage lesson on Mouse!

Okay so Mouse is a good boy but his problems are getting tense, spooky as an excuse, getting hollow, etc.
I went to a lesson with Susan White, had he was AMAZING! We worked on long and low and stretching trot alot to get him to relax so I know I don't have much contact, we were just getting him to realize that if he relaxes and puts his head down, then he will be a happy horse and I wont ask him much for the time being.

Tell me what you think!

Thank you!! He is like a whole new horse! His improvement has skyrocketed in this week. Susan White is the best! I've known 4 people whole went to her and she transformed their horses and help loads with any problems they had. She is a gifted teacher/rider!

I highly recommended it if you have access to knowledgeable horse people! I take 2-3 lessons a week, it always helps to have people to keep you on track :)

So, to me (I only watched the first 30 seconds or so of the video), it looks like he was slightly behind the vertical most of the time... I thought that was "bad"? Or maybe since you were doing long and low, that's ok? I'm confused. Haha
Enlighten me, please? :)

You guys both looked really relaxed which is really great. :)

he was just a bit mostly because this was his first time going long and low and stretching down so he is just getting the hang of it, so I think that's why, When im in more contact and have him more collected he (usually) is pretty good. I hope that answers you question!

I see a lovely relaxed horse in a good rhythm, that is using it's back not just it's legs - lovely to see! You're doing a very good job, you're a very neat little rider and I think you will both do well :)

Wallaby, I know there's so much hype about horses being behind the vertical, but there is nothing wrong with riding them occasionally a little behind, a little deep, a little over-bent etc. from time to time when training. It is good practice to be able to place the horse's head and neck where you want them to be. If you allow the neck to remain in one place for the whole ride, you can end up with a horse that braces and is not flexible through the neck and poll.

Wow, thank you, you have no idea how much that means to me because our biggest problem is him NOT using his back! I really do think he is maturing and getting down to business now, it definitely gives me more hope for our goal to go to the training three day next year!

Yep well he's certainly starting to use it now, he is looking really quite nice behind the saddle. He could be better over the back, but for a start, he's looking excellent :)
