|I have no idea why I keep losing my stirrup position.|
My horse has stayed not lame (HOORAY THANK YOU LAMENESS GODS) so I got a couple of easy rides on her last week. Well, the jumping one was not easy for me, but it was nothing spectacular. I tried to do a cross rail to a one stride over the blue barrel. Our little arena is just not big enough to do much in. We still had some rushing, but it wasn't too bad and she was listening to me a bit better. Her current issue is hauling ass towards to the jump and getting super flat and not picking up the legs.
|WEEEE JERMPS! (Also known as not how to dressage).|
Settle down mare. Settle down.
We also did some dressage.That went better, but we still had some issues. For some reason one of the corners became scary. So scary, that we had to hurry past it every time. So when we took our breaks, she got to take them in the corner. Soon, it was no longer as threatening. Corner=good things, not bad things.
|Well now this is a bit more pleasant.|
|Lost our contact but she looks very pretty here.|
|I do not have a very nice dressage body. Everything is short and blobby looking.|
|Her legs were finally clean enough to try out her new boots!|
|The evil corner is behind us.|
|Also worked on keeping contact with her stretched down just a tad more in the canter.|
