Great video, but I've got a couple observations/questions.
AT ANY POINT, if I miss somthin, or am wrong about somethin, feel free to corect me and tap me on the back of the head with the whip! No hard feelings will be taken..
OK, from what I see, when you first start out, that would be a "walk" right?
About :16 into the vid, I am assuming that you "changed gaits" right? What is this called?
Now in this pace, I am assuming that the inside leg is called the "lead" and that should always be the inside leg (with the exception of a cross canter, right?)
Now I am also assuming, that (since you were urning right for this portion) if you made a left turn, the lead would have changed, and that would be a "flying lead change"? (shooting in the dark here...)
I see the whole time that you have some pressure on the reins....now I'm assuming that you must have some leg pressure on the horse at the same time. Is that what the "collection" is all about? I'm assuming thats why the horses but seems to be slanted down in the rear, and tucked up underneith. Or do I got it wrong?
Then at 1:21, you change paces again. Iam assuming that is a trot (again, correct if wrong...carrots are appreciated for right answers though!!) and you are posting.
OK, I'll stop disecting there and come back to it later.
The second vid....Oh, I can train some of that stuff!! Like stand while being mounted....lol. We'll go from there and work on the rest later...maybey tommorrow. lol Thats some pretty ammazing stuff there!
Why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed?
