The truth about dressage part 2
|January 18, 2015||Posted by Melinda under Uncategorized|
Why oh why do I always ask for *just a little more*?
The truth about dressage is that it very accurately predicts what mistakes I am likely to make in endurance.
My biggest mistake in dressage is not asking for *one more* turn on the haunches. It is this conversation: “that was great! Let’s do just one more…”
Fortunately, “just one more” in dressage usually doesn’t result in any permanent injury to the horse, unlike the consequences of making that mistake endurance.
Just a pissed off horse reminding her frustrated rider once again….that no matter what activity she is doing, she has a tendency to go a little too far, so STOP IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
**PS – enjoying the drawings? These are partly-finished drawings that (after being completed) will be included in my book that will be published on Amazon. When? As soon as I have $2.99 worth of content written! (I’m getting close!)
What I posted….
One year ago: Tig goes on a trail ride
Two years ago: Things more interesting than studying for onco test tomorrow
In contrast I’m REALLY good about not asking too much in driving. Maybe a more immediate sense of danger if I do? Less abstract?
fun drawing! Can’t say I’m guilty of doing anything too often in an arena setting, HAHA. But I hear ya on the intent
Love the drawings, can’t wait to read the book!
Hmmm that’s always a difficult thing for me as a trainer. “Just once more to finish out this schooling session….”
