Chantal and Mia have been out competing at Novice and are about to go out for their first Elementary, so they decide to spend the session looking at 10 meter circles in trot and canter, and that Chantal is clear on collected trot and walk, and extended walk and trot.
Chantal has been pleased with Mia’s schooling. They’ve been working on medium and collected trot, still working in the paddock. Chantal has been focusing on getting to the top of her rise, and making the rise ‘bigger’. She says that she needs to ‘relax’ as well as have tone, after watching a video of her last test, which she says her tension was being transfered to Mia.
They also look at trot-halt, rein back, extended walk.
