Excellent lesson

With Becky Holden who's top notch and recently been training with Philippe Karl.  Pricey but worth it.

We were going to warm up in trit but we went trot spook  - there was a man on the stable roof he spotted before we did! So warm up in walk whilst he calmed down and the man did his thing mending holes

So working on bend without turning, counter shoulder in rather than shoulder in, don't let him get above the hand. 

Stirrups went up a hole fir trot and will stay up.  I was reaching too much so no wonder that wasn't working!

And was a shade too upright.

Betterby the end as were downward  transitions generally

All good

And we stayed dry which was amazing considering the rainstorm we'd had whilst I was waiting for Becky to arrive

  1. Sounds like a great lesson. It's always good when you come away with techniques and ideas that not only work, but that you continue on your own.
