This past week I had one lesson with my coach Belinda Trussell where we did a simple canter exercise. Canter on the true lead and turn onto the quarter line and leg yield to the wall. Remaining in leg yield transition from canter to walk. The second part of the exercise was to pick up the counter canter and then leg yield from the wall toward the center. Then as in the first exercise transition to walk.
It is such a simple exercise . Simple yes, but not easy! Here is a video (taken by my husband) that shows the exercise: on the left rein in true canter, counter canter and then both on the right rein. You will also notice I am grappling with sitting to the right due to an issue with my right leg. I will get that sorted out soon.
Thursday I had a minor surgery to remove a skin cancer from the bridge of my nose so I will not be riding for a few days. Have a good weekend everyone!
I’d love to hear from you!
