To recap our last lecture/demo of the season, we have a special treat of some brief video clips! Paul gave a lecture on the history of longeing, followed by an explanation of our equipment with a live horse model and discussion of other methods and equipment.
I have noticed a nagging weakness that shows up in a lot of riders. They have an aversion to studying theory.
Caposalda is a 15.3 hand 2011 registered Half Andalusian (IALHA). "Cappy" is a comfortable, responsive mare with easy lateral work and extensions. Schooling flying changes (see video.) Lovely gaits and potential to go much farther.
In every dressage competition test, at every level, in every country, the horse and rider will start and finish the test with a halt. The beginning of the test may read, “A: Enter working trot. X: Halt, Salute. Proceed collected trot.”
Our second lecture demonstration of the year, Developing a Successful Practice, was a comprehensive overview of principles for both the rider and the horse.
Sold: Three year old pure Andalusian gelding. 16.2 hands. One of the nicest prospects we've been able to offer. No weaknesses in his gaits, beautiful balance for a young horse....
