Since we finally finished an event, I purchased the Ride On Videos. Now you can watch us flail our way around the intro division.
This makes me physically cringe to watch it. I should probably watch myself do dressage more often because I can see a ton of things I need to improve. I used to video my lessons with Nilla, but have gotten out of the habit.
He’s just so freaking slow. He thinks he’s going fast, but he’s not. Water refusal at 2:30. Tripping over his own feet at 2:35 (it looks like he’s stepping down a bank, but there’s no bank).
I didn’t realize until watching this video that he was doing partial changes. I’ve been avoiding teaching him changes because of the problems that would create in dressage, but maybe he’d like to learn. Also, it’s hilarious that this is his fast mode.
