For my past two rides on Lucky, I rode in a jumping saddle, and will continue to do so for the next few months. This can help me develop a better balance because jumping saddles are harder to balance in than dressage saddles, the latter of which are meant to carry a rider in an upright position and good balance.
|Nice picture from Saturday. Lucky is actually|
coming round(which I hadn't tried to do),
and the fog on the hills adds a pretty touch.
What went well:
|Working on two-point|
- Lucky was responding more to my aids at a forward pace. I think this is because of the lungeing work I have been doing, which caused her to gain respect for me and caused me to grow more confident in what I was asking.
|I have good elbows here!|
What went well Saturday:
- Better balance at two-point
- More in tune with Lucky
- I kept her straight most of the time.
