Pictures from My Dressage Test and a Fall Picture

 I'm really happy with how many nice pictures I got from my last lesson. I even have one of me falling off! The first few are of me riding Ginger at the trot along the perimeter of the dressage court, and then there are some of my dressage test. My heels are not done in some of the pictures.
Trotting.
Notice my heel.

At A in the dressage court.
Turning down centerline.
Riding towards B to do a 20 meter circle
Here I think I am doing my 20 meter circle at B.
Now I am riding my circle at E and am heading back towards E.



Cantering!

Ouch! I'm flying over her head. I did a somersault in the air and landed on the ground pole  by Ginger.
After getting back on I did some circles at C at the trot.
Heading in the other direction. Look how much better my heel is.

  2. Nice that you got a photo of your first fall, haha! And my equitation improves 100% immediately following an unscheduled dismount. ;]

    1. Right after I got back on, my heels went down. I didn't want to repeat it!

    1. I was cantering, and my heels weren't down, so when Ginger suddenly stopped I went over her head.
