"Look back at our struggle for freedom,

Trace our present day's strength to it's source;

And you'll find that man's pathway to glory

Is strewn with the bones of the horse."

Dressage Naturally!

Today I got Karen Rolf's Dressage Naturally DVDs. and I loved them. so I went out and try ed it with blaze. and I started on the ground and he was acting a little RBE. so I has to interrupt the pattern a few times till he Finally calmed down. (it was really windy) so then I got on and just started him walking around doing some stuff that I watched but really just getting him listening to me, and he was doing Great. I wasn't even having to use my legs. he was listening to me "body" which was so cool.

so then I started some of the exercise. and Blaze was doing Great. and just in a few minutes he was offering a slow walk trot and canter. which he has never ever ever Done! he was so responsive if I asked walk canter he said Yes ma'am if I asked canter stop Yes Ma'am he was doing anything. and when I asked for a straight line canter (which most of the time he will just bolt forward) he stayed at the same Pace I was like this is Totally awesome dude! lol!! I didn't want to stop it was so cool! I did more freestyle then finesse cause now I'm like I'm gonna get his Gaits better be for I start doing more finesse. anyway I can't wait to ride again. I really hope it goes as good as it did today!

But If any of you want to learn Dressage. or just have better Finesse I would Totally suggest Karen's DVDs and book http://www.dressagenaturally.net/

until next time. Keep in Natural :)
