Video of me riding Nova :)
This is not to be a critique video really..
She's just starting to loosen up and some what relax when it comes to riding.. we both have quite a ways to go but I do see an improvement.. as far as how stiff and how unflexable she use to be. She's much more of a joy to ride.
She's still pretty introverted and counterbends on one side.. but its not NEARLY has bad has it was! :) Im proud. She doesnt brace like she use to either.
I deffinately need work on my position but again, its not a critique video.. im already cringing at the site of my riding position! :P
NOTICE THAT SHE GOT BOTH CANTER LEADS!!!!
You will see im exagerated rein lifting, sometimes it will be to block her shoulder .. or to keep her from diving out when asking her to bend or straighten up. Rather then just pull her to one side.. my instructor explains it MUCH better then I.. and eventually it wont need to be as extreme to get her to understand..
