Lesson Monday - 6.30am!
In canter – stop gripping with leg, and light quick inside leg aids to keep the jump (I find this hard)
Sit on pockets rather than bum out behind me
Sit over to the left, and drop left hip, and left leg
Don't rock with shoulders
Trot when warming up– slow it down, then push him on – variation in the pace.
Later said lots of trot to canter or walk to canter transitions will really help him
had me flexing his neck to inside and outside in trot and canter to
initially a bit sticky in early trot and canter. But later canter I was
able to ride him a lot more on and back without him breaking.
Is getting him connected, and together and using himself, it is coming.
Am sure have forgotten something.
from instructor - he is sound, but very weak, and needs to be a lot
stronger. He is clever and can quite easily displace me for the easiest
way of going.
a good lesson. Remi was
very pleased with himself, and the work we finished on was pleasing. .
am hoping steady, gentle work in next 6-8 weeks, and he will stay
sound, and build muscle and strength (to then be less injury and
accident prone). All crossed.
