I tried a journal. I'm bad at those. Can't seem to have enough words for them.
However, I love feedback on my rides, so I thought I'd try to make a "critique journal" (hopefully that's legal) where I would upload videos as I can get them and some of the brilliant souls (honestly I think HF has realestate in some of the best horsemen and women) could tell me what to do different or better. I don't get many lessons, and we're mostly on our own for dressage at a barn that does all the AQHA disciplines.
I've titled it "better or worse" because the idea is to evuate improvement from the last ride, or the last month, or the year before.
Okay. Run down. This is Nick, Arabx German riding pony (or American sport pony whichever you will). He's 10ish. Too green for ten, but oh well. Low miles. We've spent awhile fighting saddle fit, spent 8 months bareback, ended up with a Stubben Juventus (I thought it was a laurus... Woops) and we appear to be trucking along in our dressage and muscle building.
So here is a brief timeline. Please nobody feel like they need to watch them all. You'll end up like my SO who thinks dressage is like watching paint dry.
