New pics of Ocean from today in a lesson!

Recommended Posts

Ocean had her 'first' lesson today with my trainer. Sadly, I was not able to ride her lol. Kind of odd, I know. It's hard to explain. Please do not critique the rider as she does not want one, but you may critique Ocean.. Oh and these are from beginning to end so the first are bad, but they get better..

Walking:

-

Warming up trots..

-

-

Starting to move a little..

-

More movement... working on powering up her engine.. She did pretty good too.

-

-

-

Mid stride

-

MORE PLEASE DONT POST YET!

Ocean is gorgeous! [Eek!] She's stunning, to put it simply!

You can really tell that as she begins to warm up, she's using all of her body nicely and her hindquarters are engaging nicely as well! What a beauty! She seems like she will be/is a very nice Dressage horse!

Ocean is gorgeous! I love how she uses herself, she looks like a real sweet mare.

My one comment is that her saddle is MUCH too far forward. It's perched on her withers and interfering with the movement of her shoulder. If you correct the saddle placement next time she's ridden, she may be even MORE willing to gather herself and come into the bit.

It's a friend of mine riding and she asked that if I show them online, to white out her face. Just for safety reasons heh.

She looks better but DEF needs to have that saddle moved back at least 3". Its blocking her shoulder and her movement and isnt doing her any favors.

She has a mutated form of "white spot" syndrome.

Beautiful horse!! I agree, the saddle is way too far forward. Bring it back off her shoulders and her movement will be even better. I just posted to Tonka in her recent post with pictures about how to tell when the saddle is far enough back to be off the shoulders.
