I haven’t posted in a little while because I have really been working on the little things with Landon. My trainer has a base in dressage, and even though my goal is Low Juniors, she is supporting that through proper flat work. Please critique me and him:) I was working on engagement in the hind, a light seat, and good posture in this lesson. The canter photo was going away from a jump, and I am still adjusting to Landon’s forward pace.

This is my mare, Aria, and I. Just looking for some outside input! Half passes are a work in progress, the right ones are getting pretty good, left is still hard. Just started the tempis, I can get the 4′s but I have trouble with the timing of the 3′s, any tips? Also, we are stating the pirouettes, any tips on begging those? The left one is actually easier, going right she likes to run out through my left leg. Thank you so much!!
Hi! I’m working with a horse for a few months for somebody and I’m curious what you think of him so far. I’ve been with him for about 3 weeks now and before that he had never been consistently worked and was/is super out of shape. He’s been improving soooo so so much, and he’s a very cool horse. Super mover and an awesome work ethic, he seriously wants to please you! We’re just focusing on his flat work because he’s quite weak and even though he’s 11 he’s quite green.
Sorry for the photo quality, they’re stills from a video.
Please critique my gelding and I.
This evening was the first time I’ve ridden him in a dressage saddle since we’ve taken the past month and a half to work on stretching and relaxation. What are your thoughts? I’ve posted a video link below if you are interested in viewing it. I apologize for my position in advance – I am still very new to dressage and have only ridden in a true dressage saddle a handful of times!

Hi, Karen! Just wanted to give you an update. Fritz and I had our last dressage show of the season this past weekend and we finally broke 60% in First Level 1! We got a 62.414% and landed in 6th place!!! I’m so happy and proud!
I recently got our saddle reflocked and that has made a world of difference. I also removed my spurs (since I’m having a problem with my toe turning out) and have been using a dressage whip instead. Fritz seems to like the whip better than spurs constantly poking him. I wonder why?
Unfortunately, no photos or video from last show, but it was the best dressage show we’ve had all season! I’m super happy and proud!!!
Hello! This is from our most recent dressage show, we won 1st place with a score of 67.18%, our highest score to date! There was a fix-a-test clinic the day before where it was much better (especially the free walk, not quite sure what happened today). The judge said that she’s a special horse and that we should move up. Please critique, thanks!
