Lesson (Dressage/Jumping) - Photos -

Had A Jumping/Dressage lesson this week :) OhMyGod-ie he was perfect. He was soo good. We really worked on getting impulsion out of me and passing it through to him for our dressage competition next week and he was THE BEST! Perfect canter leads, one screw up and I noticed and took him back to trot and tried again without Aamelia having to remind me. We're improving every week and his coming along lovely in his flat. I was FERAL over fence at the start and we only got pictures from the start as the camera died.. but my feet/legs did improve and I stopped jumping so far up on his neck and took my hands forward without the rest of my body following amd my legs slipping out from under me. I'm SOO excited for dressage next weekend and I'm soo confident we're going to get perfect canter leads and he WILL canter this time. I've got a caller too so no course errors. Things are looking really good for us and I'm becoming so much more of a "confident" jumper and Chinga's still going at the jumps as confident as ever. We worked him on long lines of trot polls - as he rushes into them and we actually got him to halt before them and he just trots straight through with only ONE half halt.

As I said earlier the O/F pictures are icky but we did improve. We're working on my lower body HEAPS as I seem to be realeasing more now and its sooo natural. Yes we do have a martingale on him as he was throwing his head to a point where I had no control when we went over some faster jumps.

Chinga - Ignore his icky nose.. he found something to dump it in just before we rode..

A photo that we BOTH look nice in!

This is actually from an exersize tilting my upper-body forward. Ignore my feet.

In this one Aamelia wanted me to ride him into the fence fast BUT STEADY, ignore my feet.. We are working on them. I had to really hold him back into the fence as he was trying to be too quick so then I kinda massively realeased over fence .

Getting something explained too me.

Icky lower body, as you can see I'm forgetting my weight in my heels and gripping with the knee and thats throwing my uper body forwards O/F.

First go at the fully set up bounce.. Ahh that was VERY awkward..

Ickyy arms.

Both Aamelia and I agree Chinga and I have a long way too go - mainly O/F for me. But we're coming along really nicely. No lesson next weekend with Aamelia as we are both showing Sunday - but we may fit one in during the week.

Oh my gosh. I want your bridle. Where'd you get it??

I love Chinga <3 looks like a very nice mover, and believe me everyone is guilty of that overexcited break-over-at-the-ears thing. I know I sure have -.- like...yesterday lol. Didn't think my guy was gonna make it over the fence and my brain was just like 'just two point all the way up to his ears. That should help.'

Chingaaa! You guys have improved a lot! I don't like the spacing between that bounce stride though.

Yes!! The bridle is fantastic! :)

So are the pictures, by the way! Wow thats a big release *g*! At least you didn't flip flop like me earlier this week, my horse decided to go VERY slow at the last possible second, stare at the jump - not quite fully stopping, then lurch himself over it as high as possible. Needless to say, my buttocks was FAr away from the saddle for a seconds :P

You two are looking really great I have to say!

When I first saw these photos, the thing that first caught my attention were all the bright colours in them. LOL. But I especially LOVE the bridle and martingale! I sooo want to steal that bridle!
