So, I can see this whole dressage thingo taking a long time to get correct, espiecially with a non-horsey family and the occasional photos to go by.
I rode Pumpkin today, just working on the walk and trot. And talk about dead as a doorknob... Even with the time off and his grain this week. Poopsies.
Flexion is coming along nicley, and whoopy for half halts! I am starting to work on him engaging the hind end, and from the vidoes I got, yeah, I can see a difference - small, but it is a difference ;)
His balance at the end was better, I could deffienatly feel that as well. We still need a lot of work before I will start thinking about jumping mini courses ect.
There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky
