I didn't even notice vids posted, just commented on the still photo. Got to see what's up.
Good advice @Garfield70. I can't really input differently. My eyes are so bad, I kept wishing I could enlarge or zoom in. Vision used to be 400 in the left eye is now non exhistant and my right eye's had surgery but not great. I usually try to see "the big picture" rather than details. I only noticed him being very forward and your stirrups a bit long so what Garfield said makes sense. He'll get there.
Was by myself again today but I did shorten my stirrups, tried 2 holes at first but felt way too short so 1 it was and focused on keeping my lower leg back. It did help keep me from tipping forward, I think a big part of it that helped was just being aware of it as well!
I also worked on regulating the trot a little more and played around with some walk/trot tests... my goal at the beginning of the year was to make it out to at least 1 dressage show this year... and the last one is on the 19th. I started putting together my entries, and I think I'm going to do 3 walk trot tests and the materiale class. I know were not ready at all, but all I hope to take away from this is experience, and have the judges remarks to work on over the winter and of course get Flash's feet wet in the show ring!
That will give me a starting goal for next summer too! Wish us luck Haha
@Rhythm 'n Blues did you get a chance to get back to civilization yet!? Lol I'd love a few pointers before diving into our first little show
Since these vids I have been more aware of my lower leg coming forward (and shortened my stirrup a hole) as well as have been working on regulating our speed a bit better!
