I know, I know, dressage is painfully boring for people not geeked about it like I am. Here are a couple videos from my clinic on Wednesday for those who want to see.
I wasn't sure how to shorten them?? My technology saavy is sorely lacking.
We are far from perfect but we have a good time (mostly) - Sera's objections in one of the videos aren't so much fun for either of us but we've come this far. We'll get past it in time.
(After watching the video, I see my legs need to mean it and then be still - I had no idea how busy they were being - it's really annoying - poor Sera. My hands also need to become more still as Sera can tick tock her head back and forth...when I bend her in one direction, I need to bend from my wrist, not my hand and not be so quick to let go creating the tick tock motion. More purposeful use of my hands/wrists vs. a quick bend and release... and probably a slew o' other things... another reason I love this sport... it's all about the journey.)
I really love this sport along with my race track reject, Sera, sent home from racing because she was too slow. I brought her home when she was 4. My trainer helps me immensely from the ground in my weekly lessons, the rest of her "new job" training has happened with me riding her.
Lucky for all of us Furry Husband ran to the car for something and he completely missed the arms flopping around like a chicken in the extended trot sitting. SHEW!
Here's to watching paint dry!
