Taking full advantage of some more forward!
She’s been fun to ride! Still twisty-and-resisty, but we work together in a whole different way now.
It sank in one day that no one’s really going to show up and install any sort of shoulder in button. Or haunches in. Or any other button…
And no one’s going to really say if /when we’re ready for it either…
So, on my own I’ve played with Valiosa a few times with it and she’s responding well. Experimenting – helps if you know how to train the horse to do it.
Well, details. Then back to hind-pushing-straight focus. (It’s hard!)
No pictures of that, but if she wants to go along, maybe another time.
Figured out a mistake – trying to introduce quarter turns in canter. She can do them, good actually, but our focus should be on going forward in canter.
Love it when she can stay under the seat like this, true on the outside rein, but to be more “real” the canter has to be more forward. With the front hooves coming off the ground a little more 🙂
Valiosa says – Good luck with that, that’s exhausting, I canter how I canter…
We’ll see how that goes this summer!
Few days ago – a lesson for the first time in a month.
That’s all the excitement this time. So many pictures…
