Yes, I do my turns pretty much as you are saying, I turn my horse into my inside leg pressure and then if I have to I push her from the outside to keep her moving.

We used to have a beautiful side pass and could do lovely diaognal trotting (don't know what's that called in dressage, but we'd keep her body straight but her legs would be pushing her diagnally across the ring?). Now she isn't so responsive to my cues. We have a lot of make up work to do, and heck, if she never gets it, so what. We are just doing this for fun anyway :)

Ya'll look so great. She is a real sweetie and you look like you never stopped riding. Congrats on getting back into it. Keep those awsome pix coming. :)

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Thanks smrobs. Appreciate the comment!
I hope Dobe's vet appointment goes well (I see in your signature you are worried).

What a beauty! I love her colouring. :)
And you look great! Gosh, your making me crave getting back in a western saddle even more now. I haven't ridden western in years, and I have to wait a week before I can go see my horse again. (stinkin exams)

7ponies and Maynme, I have problems with my feet too, bone spurs, ouch! Stopped wearing my Ariats even with gel insets, to painful. Found a pair of boots that were soooooo comfy and the price was great! They're Dublin Spirit Trail Boots for $49.99, they zip and I love them so much I wear them most of the time (can't at work). Here's the site , not expensive but worth looking into imo.



Dublin® Spirit Trail Boots - Horse.com

BTW, you look great on your horse and she looks like she's enjoying herself too! Doesn't look rusty from the Photos.

Thanks for the link to the boots!

I'm still in my tennis shoes riding. I know it's a big no-no, but it's the most comfortable shoes I have. My right foot has been absolutely buggering me lately, doctor told me she'd send me to an orthopedic surgeon, but I'm just not ready for surgery yet.

Thanks rottenweiler, she HATES the camera, that's why she keeps looking at it :) Of course, I have a Nikon DSLR with a 70-300 lens on it, so it does look rather intimidating to her :)

I live in knoxville!!!be sure to contact me when you move!!

Oh, I can't wait to move. Unfortunately, with the real estate market the way it is, it may be a few years until I get to Tennessee, but I definitely am planning on it.

I'm heading up to the Crossville area next month to scout around and get a feel for the area.

I am hoping to start my own business up there so need to be close to some more populated areas, but I want to live where I can have a few acres for my horses and dogs.
