I had to write a quick positive note on my horses. As we well know, we should remember each great ride and break-through, because there will always be a day we can’t remember when it was fun.
This week I have expierenced several of my horses “personal best” days with me.
A lovely dressage horse, Tommy gave me the a wonderful ride yesterday. I started to remember why people ride pure dressage. He carried himself and allowed me to be part of his movement. I believe after the time the body work man took releasing his shoulders and neck, it will only get better. Thanks to Robin for letting me share her horse!
Next, Tatiana. She is such a cool mare; great attitude, personality and body. Sometimes very difficult for me to decide on her canter. This week, dressage lesson was truly fun with good movements in all three gates (and HUGE bolt). Then a little jumping in new equipment and I felt power and confidence with balance. She is a bit confused on the changes (per the bucking afterward) but I think we are moving in a great direction. Click below to see Tat’s grid work.
Then, Audi, cute black mare is loving the jumping. She is looking forward to her next jump and VERY athletic and good form.
To top it off, everyone who rode in a lesson this week looks the best I have seen them! Wow, it is Thursday. Maybe I should call it a week and enjoy the moment.
Nope, off to Arizona this afternoon for a sun filled weekend of teaching, family and football. Check out the calendar for the latest updates on shows, clinics and lessons. It changes fast so stay tuned in. Hope to see you soon.
