Hi there :) The beginning of my story is there: Rebringing up 7y.o. mare
Now, to my problem :)
I can see great improvements of both Lisa and me. We got from sharp D ring:
To soft one:
She would stop easily from canter to walk only on voice and seat, she understands verbal aids (in translation :) ): go walk, go trot, go hop (4 canter), whoa (for stopping), and special aid for going faster (but still in one pace-for extending the trot, walk, or faster canter)> "šlape!" she listens to them for 99% in arena, 75% on trail rides. She goes well on the new bit, she has it now for a week and she started slowly to accept it very well.
And I have now question. Does he work from behind? I cannot recognize it in every situation and what's more, Lisa has is "over-built"(?)->she has her butt higher than whithers. The arena is slightly downhill. Here are recent pictures ( from Sunday and Monday)
<<my seat is terrible there :(
