I think I'm becoming addicted to watching dressage videos and "tutorials", so I'll just come here for some more ideas of what to work on with Indie. I wish there was a dressage coach closer, but there isn't. Maybe in the future though.
I'm just wondering if anyone has any ideas on what we could work on? I'd like some exercises involving transitions, getting her hind-end under her, bending.. etc. I try to include things like back ups, lateral flexions, free walking and side passes in our warm ups. I'm also starting to work on turns on the forehands/haunches as well. We've also been doing some leg yields as of lately. Most of our work is walk/trot since her right lead canter still isn't consistent so usually we just try to get a few correct leads that direction and we'll move onto something else.
So, what kind of exercises do you do with your horse to strengthen up their hind-end and get them using themselves?
