We figured out our rein lengths! She looked so comfortable here (and tired…this was at the end of the session). Hopefully tomorrow I can try working on the rhythm and length of her trot and walk. My goal for the canter is rhythm and NOT leaning in with her shoulder.
Her hindquarters get so tight when she’s in any sort of “collected” frame, even undersaddle, so I’m hoping to really work on loosening her up on the lunge.
She only had one freak out on this side but that was because unsupervised children were released in the parking lot and allowed to run around screaming with three dogs. I almost shouted at them to control their children but I got caught up in keeping Tesla at a walk. She calmed pretty quickly and CONTINUED to work afterwards without needing to stop and regroup the brain. So proud 😌
