Photo Update

Our ride today was pretty much the same as yesterday, but with a little more work extension wise.
To summarize, as yesterday, warmed up with laterals, and stretching.
I continued the work I did yesterday, solid outside rein soft half halting when appropriate inside rein. Clean transitions, suppleness, calm.
Extensions weren't great, they never are under saddle, but we are getting there!
Afterwards we went for a little jaunt outside in the deep snow before it melts this weekend.
Great ride again :D
Jumping with H tomorrow (filming for my equine affair application)


Walk stretch


Some awkward looking trot stretch


Fuzzy vid stills of our 'extensions'...


...They need work, but they aren't hateful...


.....I'd like to see more lift but I'll take the extension we are getting...




"Hey mom this snow is reeeeally high..."




Minus the snow this would be an epic trot...too bad we can't do dressage tests in foot deep snow!



Speaking of Equine Affair...I FINALLY figured out how to edit videos, so Dressager, you won't have to do it for me! YAY! I will upload vids as soon as I send them out.
Wish me luck, I will be working on the application all weekend.
