Riding Vettie - 23/11/13

Today has been a good day for my riding. I was riding Vettie today and after the two good lessons I had had last weekend I was feeling a lot more confident about my riding. I knew that I wanted to work on my position mainly my legs as my right legs heel comes up. 

 I spent a while warming up making sure that Vettie was nice and loose. I also wanted to make sure that I had got an energetic walk so that when I wanted to pick up the contact it would be easier to do. When I started picking up the contact I was surprised that Vettie was listening incredibly well to me and I was able to drop him in to an outline. Two weeks ago I had been struggling with getting Vettie in to an outline but this week I could do it. Once I'd got the outline more consistent in the walk I moved up to the trot. 

In the trot I had to find the right balance between being firm and half halting him and keeping the energy flowing. It was important that I kept my position very tight and didn't tip forwards. I was so surprised to find that I could get him in to an outline in the trot. It felt so nice to be able to ride and do what I wanted to do. 

I finished the lesson on a really good note. I also noted that during the lesson my leg and heel were gradually becoming a lot stiller. I am so happy with the work that I have done and it has made me feel a lot more confident in my riding. I've also been working on making sure that I keep the horses mind busy so doing lots of transitions, circles, bending and serpentines. 

I love this photo. I don't know what it is but there is something that I really like about it. 
More pictures to come. 
Until Next Time
