Ooooh! Kayty! Thanks for stopping by!
So, when her feet are moving like that, it means she's on the forehand? Usually she does track up really well, she doesn't overtrack very much but she does track up. However, she cut up her right back leg marginally badly the other day and she seems to be sore. I did notice that she was moving really differently than usual while I was taking those pictures, she seemed to be moving more with her front legs than her back legs. That's being on the forhand? I had no idea that I could see that! I always figured that only dressage smart people like yourself could see that! Cool! Maybe that's why so many pf the pictures from that day came out with her feet like this, she's sore so she's working on the forehand instead of using her backend more like usual...
I have more questions for you, if you don't mind... :) She usually does track up undersaddle and while she doesn't know how to collect really (I don't either so I've shied away from trying to teach her since it would be the blind leading the blind) whenever I've posted videos/pictures of us no one has ever said she's on the forehand. I'm not saying that it probably doesn't happen, I know it does, but I hesitate to say that that's the "problem". I happened to get a marginally ok conformation picture yesterday for my hoof thread and i'd like to know what you think of her shoulders when she's not moving. I'm trying to educate myself about how everything works together and what Lacey's faults are, what faults in general are, that sort of thing. so, if you'd be so kind as to tell me what you think of her shoulders, that'd be great! I always figured she has pretty nicely sloped shoulders, but I know next to nothing about these things!
Maybe she's just a bouncy horse... She's really smooth when I can get her to slow it down and stop tracking up at all... Huh. Weird poneh.
She has her front left leg turned weirdly in this one (in the other good one, she's looking at the camera, which was kinda worse, imo) so don't mind that. She's much more attractive in motion. hahaha
