Dressage lesson.....maybe Training Test B isn't so bad.
We had a great lesson! Beth worked on individual parts of the test with me and it really helped. And then we put it all together to work on the sling shot part of it. I'm feeling much better about it.
I think practicing rapid fire transitions before the test will help too. And I need to remember to go for it on the canter lengthens and don't stop lengthening until the end. And to ALLOW him to stretch! But I have to hold that outside shoulder in or he'll spiral out. But I wasn't giving him enough rein, so...ask him to come down and stretch into the rein, but once he does, allow him to stretch to the buckle! And he actually will!! :)
So yep... lots of good stuff. :)
