|This used to be exciting; now collected trot is exciting! |
Never would have seen that coming!
While experiencing this trot, I felt like I could push out into a medium trot or down into a walk or even a halt at any moment, with just the slightest cue. Plus, the trot I was in was easy to sit, energetic and I had a very consistent feel in both my reins. Wow! Who knew that I would ever get so excited about trotting around a dressage arena. :)
After listening to me blabber about this for a few moments, my trainer had three simple words to describe my feelings - "on the aids." So, there you have it - my horse was on the aids! What a lovely feeling!
