Double Slalom

Every once in a while it is good to have video proof of what is happening under saddle. I know what it feels like and I am still doing regular lessons (maintaining social distancing) so I have feed back from Amanda. However, it is good for me to SEE what he is doing.

We have an issue with holding our body straight in our flying changes going from the left lead to the right. It could be in part due to him wanting to protect his left hock, or it could be residual from him wanting to protect his left hock, or it could be my awesome training/riding technique that has taught him to throw his left hip in and do the boxer kidney bean move. (Anyone with a boxer will understand that comment.)

Either way, I have shared with Amanda and she has a game plan to work on it. If it is partly physical, we might just need to do what we can until we can have the doc come out to do injections. Here is the video my barn wife took during our joint ride yesterday (she rides a mare so the social distance is a couple of horse lengths. :) )
