My dear friend Michelle from-CHOCOLATE AND MARMALADE TEA- getting some really good instruction. This was her very first Dressage lesson!
It was a fairly nice fall day, with some gorgeous backdrops!
I also took a lesson this day with the mare. Washashe did well for having been burn't out in this arena, years before, with lesson plans that were not so planned..Hind sight is 20/20 vision!
I also found out I had some "unlearning" to do too. My last clinitian had focused on me not blocking the mare and I had mastered it soo well...I was actually not even there and had started to ride with my elbows locked forward. The mare had started to react to my ambiguous stance. This new clinitian caught me and stopped me...now I just need to practice!
