Ali is doing a really good job on Kinns....I remember a shorter/younger girl about a year ago saying " I'm not riding her" - and now look you Ali - big :thumbup: :hug:

I love her! Her balance is still unsure so she has her head up and is hollow which I'd be careful with. Get her bending laterally to soften or she will build underneck muscles and not use her abs which will be bad for her back. She's going to be super and Ali is doing a great job, take it slowly and bend her.

Couple of pics form today in our "arena" or the road by the farm as it's known. We've been doing a bit of bending/stopping/starting etc, just 10/15 minutes a couple of times a week and just recently I really think Sky is starting to listen to Ali instead of going straight into argue mode......

Really wanted to do the new Baroque test with her this month but they've dug up the road between our yard and the dressage yard where they hire out arenas :roll: Will it be on next month's schedule, Trudi?

Nice, Helen :thumbup:

I can't think of a better word than 'relaxed' to describe her in the first photo. In fact, I think that's the most chilled I've ever seen her. The second one is lovely, with the loose-ish rein and the listening ears.

Ali is looking great, they look a perfect pair :thumbup: keep her neck as soft as you can when you work in the 'school' and it will keep improving. Not sure what Karina has planned next month, I don't have much say in it but maybe if you asked on FB she would put it in :wink:

This thread needs resurrecting, I reckon. Must get some more vids. Sky has changed a bit since that last one when we were still in France!

Just need it to stop raining/blowing a gale long enough to actually get something done!
