Twilight Ride 11.10.14

The quality of this video (and the riding therein) leaves a lot to be desired, but it is the video in which I discover that the canter may now be better than the trot?!? Also other interesting facts like I kick my pony a lot - not OK, that pony is sweet and forgiving ( well I already knew that), and that being videoed is a good way to get tense. I also noticed in one walk section how very floppy my core is, oh dear, time to fix that. The whip I have here is the jumping type, designed more to give the pony a mental jolt rather than a physical one, she hates dressage whips. This looks a bit yahoo but is more successful.

Next week I should have a new phone that takes awesome video and lets me edit them. Excitement.

After our ride, guess what, we stripped coat......


  1. She has a really nice canter! (And you're a nice rider)

    1. I I wish I had an old canter video to show, it was terrible. I think harness work has made all the difference!

  3. nice! i'm constantly beggin people to video my rides - such a great way to learn what's working and what needs improvement :)

  4. Always nerve wracking for me as I find it hard to watch my own failings. This one had a few pleasant surprises though.
