Grids

Not too bad out there today at 25 degrees. We had a long walk warm up, then some trot work, addressing tempo, which tends to run a little quick. Then we did some lateral work, in turn on the hindquarters. She finds this a little challenging in that she likes to challenge the rider’s right to move her hindquarters, and coming over her topline during it is not going to happen for a bit. S’alright, it got a little better tonight.

Then we did some canter work and did some simple jumping grids. We had some crookedness issues that got better as we went. We have some connection issues, which are directly related to her misunderstanding of the availability of the option to sink behind the leg. We’ll get there.
