Yesterday I had a horrible lesson. Our instructor wasn't there, so we had a substitute(sp?) and she was a b**ch!!!
She was really aggressive and confusing...And ahhhh! I just wanted to shout at her!
I rode Sultan again.
No pics or vids.
Your position wasnt that bad! Just think of riding this horse as a great new experience, and youll be all the better ridier for it! My instructor is keeping wich horse I ride a mystery! She keeps switching me bettween 2 horses, that are COMPLETE opposites (one rushes, the other is lazy!) so that I will learn to adjust to a new horse quickly, and so I learn to really feel the horse jump, to know when to come in and ou of 2 point!
New horses are always good, I agree. We have thirty-some horses and I switch between almost all of them from week to week. While I have the small group that I normally ride, I could be on an advanced horse one day and a beginner pony the next. I never know what I'm in for. :]
Sorry this is late again..I keep forgetting to update this xD
My lesson this week was much much better. My instructor was back. YAY!
I rode Sultan again. At the beginning of the Lesson he was really fresh and super fast in the canter, which was awesome. Too bad my mum didn't film it. :(
For warm up we jumped a fence which was in a circle. I hate them. I never have been able to jump them well. :P I don't know why.
A few times I got in too deep and I also got left behind a few times. :(
Then we jumped a course:
Which went okey. And then we changed it a bit :
Which went really well. :)
Unfortunately my mum didn't stay to film them :(
I have a few clips but I still need to upload them.
I realized that it isn't really Sultan who has an uncomfy jump, but it's the saddle. It's horrible. Even my instructor commented on how bad it is.
Here's a pic of him over jumping, getting in too deep and my form is horrible!
(I got a little left behind)
WOOOOPS! Completely forgot about this thread. :P haha...
I'll try to update it more often now. Haha...
My lessons are now at 20:00-21:00 on Mondays. They used to be at 18:00-19:00. And it's going to be FREEZINGGGGGG! :/
I missed this weeks lesson because I was too tired to go because I had just arrived back home from England the day before.
