We had a great lesson last night. As dumb as this sounds, I feel like the saddle, horse, and I are finding a rhythm. Fawkes is still a bit slow off the leg, but that is something we will work on tomorrow. We worked on cantering a line of 8ish poles set up as a bounce, then the same exercise was set up with two crossrails in there. We cantered it in both directions.
|Not from the lesson. Sadly stuck in the indoor due to Seattle...errr, Colorado rains.|
So when I mentioned I noticed our turns are better when...wait for it.....it is a pretty big revelation.....I start using outside leg before we start turning, she has started reminding me to do that. It really helps as I require an immense amount of repetition to train my body.
Given that I naturally lack things like body awareness and flexibility, it was recommended I try yoga. I do plank regularly but have never taken a yoga class so maybe it is time to remedy that?
