Carrots and Cocktails I Photos

Show recap here

As promised, here are some screenshots from my ride videos:

Halt, Salute

See how we're pretty much pointed towards E? Ya, that's not how you're supposed to do it
Next attempt: straight but not square
Nailed it!

Free Walk

This is a decent free walk
This is also a decent free walk, but then she started trotting
This is not a decent free walk at all


This is good for us
My position could be a lot better here, but it could be a lot worse too
Legs off, not really riding, need to work on that
Ignore the rest of the photo, just look at the tail!
Training 1 - more impulsion at trot (also more tension)


This was actually the moment of our canter transition...
... but we looked a lot more reasonable two strides later


  1. That tail is something though!

  2. I love that tail photo! Looks like you've got a lot of good ones in here. :)

  3. I'm glad someone else appreciates the tail! It wasn't until literally the morning of the show when I was combing it out that I was like "damn, this is a nice tail" haha

  4. Lots of nice moments in there! I'm going to the C&C show in May to do the w/t class with my young mare - might see you there :) And I agree - lovely tail!

    1. Cool, I probably will see you there in May then. It seems like a good show series to start the green ones at, it's nice to be able to warmup in the same ring as you'll do your test in
