Struttin’ the Dressage
I went to a clinic at my dressage trainer’s this weekend, and before the clinic was a woman riding her beautiful horse. She getting a mini lesson from her, and making me wish I was more diligent about taking dressage lessons…or even practicing dressage. Of course, I took tons of photos so I could
photoshop my face over hers dream about what it would be like to be this good.
Is this a stalling post while I write up the clinic post, Courtney? Yes, it is, other Courtney. So here are some photos.
This could almost be like a selfie, because you can see me in the mirror, playing the part of the creepy photographer.
Despite looking like I took these with my cell phone, I actually did not. I just haven’t figured out indoor photography at all
The mirror pic below is not me though. As though I’d wear a red shirt. Hah!
Afterward, I was talking to her, and it turns out she just had a baby three weeks ago! She had hopped back in the saddle as soon as she possibly could. Her newborn son had already been to the barn a few times with her. I can only hope if I have a baby, I’d be back in the saddle that quickly.
About 30 minutes later, she was being the demo rider for the clinic. I also admire her stamina! More on that tomorrow.
Wow just three weeks?!? That’s impressive!! Looking forward to reading more about the clinic!
I know!! So crazy!
Lunging and Long Lining Clinic: Rider Position - An Equestrian Life
[…] bunch of exercises to work on, all to be done at walk, trot, and canter. The amazing rider from yesterday’s post was the demonstration […]
Three weeks!! That’s crazy. I wonder how far into her pregnancy she continued to ride.
Oh man, I wish I’d asked her! I’ll remember it for next time I see her.
Omg I want to be on her level
Me too… maybe one day for us both!
