We are making progress!! (excited newbie with video)
Next show is end of March. We finally reached vertical with our nose... now whatever is going on with my hands and arms there is new, as that is typically not one of my many problems, but we'll fix that this week .
Not perfect, but so much more improved since we started this business! Proof is in the other videos in my channel. Still gaga over my horse.
Thanks for the kind words, Sheilah, Lost at C, Normandy and Larkspur! Normandy, I just replied to your email...18 I believe... And Larkspur, it's funny you posted that - I am too new and inexperienced to weigh in on that thread, but I read it with great interest .
Diamond, Lady, Tropical and Merry, thank you! (and thanks for the PM, Merry, I replied ) We are having an absolute blast together - a good fit between horse and girl.
I'm wondering if we shouldn't start a thread for encouragement for newbie dressage riders...I love the feedback on videos, the kind words, and the encouragement. A little while ago we had a thread on increasing membership in GMOs, and I wrote about encouraging the new people. Perhaps this is one way to do it... I know that it really helps to share experiences with other new dressage riders, and also to receive encouragement from the BTDTs. For me, it's about the fun...this isn't my profession, and it's a real stress reliever. I think I might start that thread...what do you think?
Lovey; this is the ex-jumper, yes! Thank you for your kind words. He is learning, I am learning, and hopefully we will continue to improve every day. He's far more talented than I am, but I try to make up for that in hard work and love. We'll see what happens at the show, and I just want to keep my wits about me and actually ride .
Dancing, thank you! Yes, the clinic is here in the desert SW - I will send you a PM
