I kinda wasnt that impressed either. She is obviously on a push button horse, and whether or not she was cueing the horse is debatable.

Can anyone on here do tempi changes? To me, it looked like her timing was a little off on some of them (during the first time across the diagonal), the horse was changing before she even started to move her leg. In her second pass across the diagonal her leg seemed just be flopping. Is that what is should look like?

I was wondering the same thing Miss Katie. I thought he was a push button horse as well. I am not a dressage rider to the point I can do tempi changes, but I have ridden horses that can do them. Looking at it though...I couldn't tell.

Sure, it is easy to say "Oh that horse was push button" but I have seen riders older and more advanced have very difficult times riding highly trained dressage mounts. Because their aids are not precise or accurate.

This young girl has very quallified parents, who have learnt through Reiner.

This girl is talented and you will see her in the Olympic Ring.

I've worked on Tempi changes - and they aren't easy.

I just don't see how this girl is advanced no offense to her. I'm just not blown away. Impressed, yes. But I have seen far more stable 6 year olds and that I find more impressive.
I can see where you are coming from though :)

She isn't "advanced" being her age - but she is educated and has obviously been put in the saddle since she was capeable.

I have been put on a Level 4 Dressage Horse, and I had a hard time doing Tempi Changes.

Doesn't matter - this girl has the means, the fascillity, the parent of Reiner himself, and the capeabillity.

Expect to see her representing her Grandfather in the show ring, and doing well.

If she is at his point at her age - wait till she is in her teens.

When I said advanced, I meant advanced for her age.
I am not denying that she has very clear potential.

oh wow, people, she's 6. I think that's fantastic for a 6 year old. most 6 year olds don't even know what a lead change is, let alone how to ask for a series of them!

Remind me not to post any vids of my riding.....

I was very impressed with this little girl. My 7 year old rides very well, but I don't think she could handle tempi changes (neither could my MUCH older hubby, either.)

I was impressed, tho I DO wonder if a well trained pony wudda been easier for the little thing. I mean, the legs are flappin cuz they ain't long enuff to hang down the horse's side. But it sure ain't lack of talent, balance, or an awesome core at such a young age.

Know thyself, know thy horse.

My 5 year old still eats boogers. I'm very impressed with this little girl...and secretly jealous...

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
