JDI and Kayty are going to get a laugh out of this one.
I was watching all these old videos and I found this. I don't even know. This was literally a "I need a fifth event for the equestrian team meet" followed by "Why not dressage?"
I didn't even ride her english until that day. She felt like she was stuck in molasses too but I couldn't find a way to spur anymore without alerting the judge so I just decided I didn't care about the class and left it...Lmao...My cow pony was so confused. Unless there's a barrel/pole or cow in the arena, she's going to fall asleep. This was back in our "Mom, I couldn't POSSIBLY engage my hind end..." phase too. Hehe. You can even see her once THINK about bucking because she was getting bored - But hell, it's what she does.
I just can't stop laughing! Last time I did dressage was on this massive warmblood and HE made ME look good, but now both of us who don't know what we're doing just make us look ridiculous. Keep in mind this was quite awhile ago. It's just for giggles.
Yeah yeah backstory over and here you go....Enjoy that
