Yay! Leg Yields!

Recommended Posts

GOt my mare Sept. 9. She was more of a pasture ornament than riding horse. Been working her average of 5 days a week with dressage lessons about every other week. Lots of lunging for balance/body use issues. Had the best lesson on Wednesday with the dressage instructor. We started doing leg yields. And she grasped the concept!!!! Tonight I didn't have to press my leg as hard against her to get the yield. She's still unsure about them at the trot, but my potato brain made me happy tonight!!

Yes. Get a good trainer!

*Might sound like a flip answer, but I definitely would not have come so far with my mare without the BO(regular trainer/riding instructor) & dressage coach.
