Okay, one of my first dressage lessons…looking back at the clips I don’t think me and Winter did too badly. The only thing wrong with her is that she drifts…a lot. You’ll see that in the clips. Also once she starts going she won’t stop.
I think I learnt a lot from that lesson, and I had the bruises on the inside of my knees to prove it =P

    She’s in a lesson, lol
    I’m pretty sure her coach would know how long her stirrups should be.
    Keep in mind, its a dressage lesson.

    Thanks, Winter was a great horse to ride, very responsive, very forward going, once she starts she just doesn’t want to stop! Unfortunately, my instructor moved to a different yard, and I moved with her, so now there’s no more Winter or willis to be ridden =[ But there is a gorgeous 17hh dabble grey gelding that I can ride, and he is just as good as winter, if not better. =D =P

    It’s not impossible to get grey horses clean. Where I work as a groom and horse exerciser, we have three grey horses, who love to get their legs muddy, but they are fairly easy to get clean, their tales get so tangled though! We use Mr Sheen furniture polish on their tales (Not on the docks though) Gets the knots out no problem =]

    Thanks. Yeah I know about my heels and legs moving back, but that’s what my instructor told me too so Winter could understand what I wanted more clearly. Now that I do it on my own horse, it doesn’t happen as much :)
    And before anyone asks…yes my horse is bigger than Winter =P

    Looks great to me for a first dressage lesson. A couple of times your heels rose up but you soon corrected them yourself, so great job!

    Gorgeous pony!

    And no, you are not too big for that pony.

    She is not to big for that horse. and they are a really good team. Yah shorten your stirrups would help, you look like your reaching a bit. YOu look good on that horse.

    Thank you very much.
    In all honesty, I think my stirrups were pretty long there, I usually have them shorter. Probably made me look taller than I actually am. That might just be me, but I don’t look that tall on Ebony. =] Oh well. Winter’s a great pony, and I know I wasn’t too heavy or tall for her because we did great together in the school. =]

    Erm. No I’m not. Ziggy is smaller than her. If I was too small for her, or too heavy for her, I wouldn’t have been riding her now would I? No I wouldn’t. She’s taller than she looks in those videos, and I’m only 5foot4″, I’m not exactly tall. She is a fine height for me, and her owner is only a few inches smaller than me.
