Dressage Lesson with Claire McCormick @ CMC Equines

I have an outside hand – and I am going to use it!!!

Since the last lesson (and after being shouted at by Ibby whilst riding together at home) I have decided that I actually CAN hold a more definite contact with the outside rein.  In fact Claire had to remind me to create a little more inside flexion on a couple of occasions, adding however that she prefers more contact in the outside rein than in the inside rein – much easier to work with.

We did some work on getting Finn through the gears in trot – from “trotty-on-the-spotty” to a proper, balanced medium trot (with actual lift)!!

We are finding the gears but definitely more work to do!
