We're in a grid there, about 5 trotting poles and then a low jump, canter pole, lastly a cross rail, then a corner where we practice bending in a circle. I'm still figuring out the *feel* for the distance and two point Just gotta keep doing the grids and paying attention to get it down. She's doing great, I'm proud of her :)
This is from January:
Some things to consider: I have a hip acebulum issue, and she has a lumbar stiffness issue along with a badly set head/neck that make it practically impossible to appropriately ask her to lower her head or take a "correct" contact, so I have to hold her more. It's a kick in the butt to have to focus on keeping the contact and my body upright. She can flex and bend laterally on cue. Any vertical flexion comes and goes when she feels absolutely comfortable giving it because it is very difficult to do so.
If you can crit my mare, too, please do not crit the back or poll, and do not critique my hip.
