We’ve all been there.
Schooling the greenie at home, maybe with somewhat whacked out geometry and “fair enough” precision. But you know, getting a feel that; Yes, this is finally sort of coming along!
Then on show day, almost half the communication is lost. Not for you? It’s OK to smile at this photo bomb anyway.
At home, Miss Grey Mare, going really well.
Good canter, no four beats
Straight, stepping in well underneath, no freaking out.
Listening, going forward, not bracing or curling behind…
And then, in the showring. Valiosa’s take on it –
Canter Lengthening – “Weeeh, we go up and down! Short steps now!”
15 M canter circle – “Let’s just go straight here! No, still canter circle? How about I almost trot instead?”
“Eeeek, a camera! Sure, some 1500 shots of me on that blog, but a camera here at the show, – now that’s just too much!”
