Dressage Clinic

I rode in a dressage clinic on Saturday. It was a beautiful sunny day and I was really excited about the lesson. Jack started out really lazy because he had been enjoying the sun with his friends in the pasture. However, once I got his attention, he started to feel really light and powerful! Dave came out and took a lot of pictures, and he got some really good shots.

Now that Jack is stronger and learning how to carry himself, I want to work on some dressage tests. The beginner novice tests are so short and the movements come so fast that it was easy to be tense last year trying to get everything in. Practicing both BN tests and the USDF Training level tests will hopefully keep Jack from memorizing the tests we will do in shows this year!
