We're ready too!

I feel good about where Clair and I are, too. The main issue we're having is simply her wanting to go behind the vertical. These videos show that. I really have to get it into my routine to be more vigilant about how she's carrying herself. For example, she falls out of canter a couple times in one of the videos below, and it's at least partly because her low head is pulling her onto her forehand. We'll get good help on that during the clinic!

More Dakota highlights

R is the perfect human for Dakota. She's so patient with him and has wonderful equitation. He works hard for her. Today I suggested a couple trot-canter exercises and they both nailed them on the first try! We're having a clinic with Suzanne May next weekend and they are more than ready.
