And that's something you don't learn by doing course work every week.
|ooooh look what an exciting walk picture!|
And it's hard.
And guess what we have been doing all winter at the dressage barn?
I haven't been blogging much about riding because instead of the feel-good updates of "YEAH JUMPING SHIT" it's much more like "well, today we did a hundred walk/trot transitions". Actually, that was two weeks ago. This past week, Courage was a little footsore so instead the update should be "today we did 50 transitions from free walk to working walk to free walk each direction".
|he's a hottie|
In fact, every time I feel like we should just start accelerating forward, we take a few more steps back to do basics.
I complained to my dressage instructor and she said something like "this is dressage".
I'd be discouraged, but Courage has really started developing some sexy muscles in his neck and butt and his attitude has never been better, sooooo we're learning to rock the long and low and slow.
Am I dressaging yet?
