This month we are doing Elementary 49.
It is a nice test but it does have its challanges. Centre lines are as always very interesting with Danza but they are definitely getting better. There is a few give and retake of reins and stretching in this program which actually has been going really well to my surprise – nice surprise though.
6-8 metre loops in canter which I haven’t tried yet. But if I should take a guess this could be entertaining to watch, especially in the beginning. I shall try to get in on my vlog.
Reinbacks are also on the table and they are going really well compared to the last time I tried to do them so I am very happy!
Two half 10 metre circles in canter with change of leg through trot. These are going REALLY well.
Even though I’m working a lot with the different parts of the test my main focus is on Danzas way of going. I’m focusing on forwards & reaction. Lots of transitions, even did my first canter halt canter transition yesterday! I am over the moon!
I’m really liking these online dressage competitions! They have given me back the spirit.
And I have two clients joining in this month. One from Norway doing an Introductory and the owner of Doc doing a Preliminary. I wish them the best of luck! And anyone else also who might join in. I have a discount code takethereins that you can use with Dressage Riders Online. You can do it from anywhere in the world! Let me know if you’re joining in!
