Grounded by snow from my lesson today.
So pictures instead!
It is accumulating fast.
And starting to really feel like Christmas around here!
|Allison Kavey: “Dressage horse spooking at her very |
fancy Dressage at Devon ribbon.
|Winter makes for beautiful photos |
on the white wonder pony.
|Fancy pony knows she's fancy. ;)|
|Look at me half pass |
with the help of my tongue...-Savvy
|I try to keep this in mind every ride.|
|We used 10-meter circles in each corner to help get the correct bend before shoulder-in down the long side.|
|Covered in stains and too cold to bath - can I just lesson with the blanket on so no one sees? :(|
|Just look at that...knee roll. uhm.|
|can I have this please|
|Knee blocks you can just put in!|
|My saddle is not made for these but how hard is it to add Velcro people?!|
|Sophia knows fun.|
|One show this summer where we dug in and made it all work a few rounds.|
|Savvy says just keep passing the treats and we will keep having good times, or she will eat my boot.|
|And this is what Meyla thinks about it. Pony knows fun.|
|Cutest pony ever.|
|Working on shoulder-in at lesson last week|
|No lesson pics - just pretty pony|
|We did this on a 20m circle (to be honest, more like 25ish m oval)|
|Pictures from the Cavalia website|
|Weaving cones, combining pressure and drawing, and inviting her to think about the task and be more aware of my body language.|
|Backing from pressure and then drawing her back|
|A little fun at the beginning of trot work!|
|Shiraz being a super star at the mounting block.|
|Poles help us both work on straightness in the backup|
|Yeilding her forehand - looking for outside front to cross over and put weight into haunches for turn|
|Sideways - looking for straightness, crossing legs closest to me over the others. A tough one!|
|Practicing mounting block parking...ya, the helmet...do you think I got on? ;)|
