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!
