    What do you think of this one?

    We are just working on correctness at this time..

    Then we will speed it up.

    Figured I would tape some turns also. This is one out of shape mare who has not been ridden much since middle of last summer. So much fun getting them back into shape.

    I think that spin looks better to me. Head is down more, back is arched more, and from what I know so far, you are right to get the form right first, then speed it up.

    I also am learning the hard way of course.. to over egargerate his head placement (bent inside)... because the faster they go, the more they straighten up.... so if you start out bent to much by the time you get top speed it is just right.... This work for most manuevers. ..

    The thing is when you over bend them they run a very good chance of pushing their put out and turning on the wrong rear foot.

    There is a fine line you have to watch there.

    Yep I agree... You can't just pull on them to get that bend... you have to do a little pop or close your legs push them out of the spin and drive them into the bit and go again.... <----all of that is easier said than done.. ;)
