Dressage Lesson with Michaela Pisters
I had an excellent dressage lesson with Michaela Pisters today. I was looking for exercises I could do in order to work on proper collection. We ended up with both exercises for that goal, plus working on collected movements such as shoulder-in, travers and half-pass.
After warming up I should do a couple of 10 m. circles to a shoulder in, and then straighten.
Then a couple of 10 m. circles to a travers.
Then a couple of 10 m. half circles to a half pass.
I need to remember to keep my torso relaxed. Keep my right shoulder down, hands together, legs down. My shoulders back, arms in.
I need to work on gradually keeping Gamble’s head higher and rear-legs more underneath him.
Keep the energy up.
If he stalls on a shoulder-in or travers, straighten him out and move him forward.
When doing a medium trot across the diagonal, a couple of quick taps with both legs once we are set up and pointing in the correct direction.
