Part of the reason our jumping is improving by leaps and bounds is because our dressage is so completely rockin'. I mean, we're barely ready to go Training level at a schooling dressage show, but we are SO FAR from where we were just a month ago.
Last weekend, MC was nice enough to come to our lesson and take pics and vids. It's so nice to have a visual record of where we are and where we might be going.
Trot is coming along
Last week he was really coming over his top line - so pleasant to sit
Here's a bit of a clip that shows a walk leg yield, a bit of trot work, and our new and improved left lead canter (right lead is *almost* as good, but the vid was blurry).
One reason I love having pics and vids so much is because I can see things that I'm unaware of in the saddle.
Jeanne kept yelling at me to sit straight on the laterals, and I was like, Whaddya mean I'm not straight? Oh. Oh, I see what you're saying here. Oops.
Also apparently my left stirrup is 1 hole shorter than my right. Tack fail.
You didn't think I was going to leave you without an adorable picture of His Royal Haffieness, now did you?
