Eleanor smiled.
"Okay. Show me how you jump her."


Brodie I LOVE HORSES :)  (canterwoodcrestlover) | 51 comments ok sasha turned dolly towards the first jump and dolly eyed the jump and jumped it prefeicly, then the second before she knew it they where flying over all of them. when they came over the last one she leaned forward and patted dolly and said good girl.

"Great! I love your technique! Let her walk so she can catch her breath than pick up a nice and smooth collected canter."


Brodie I LOVE HORSES :)  (canterwoodcrestlover) | 51 comments ok, sasha walked dolly till she was not panting so much a few mins later sasha put dolly in an collected canter

Taylor smiled and place some poles and a couple vertical jumps.
"Okay. Dolly seems very eager to jump so let's practice. You are going to canter towards the first pole + vertical then change direction in the second corner to the other one. After, you shall quicken Dolly's pace and change leads WITHOUT letting her trot. She will jump the second pole + vertical and you will do a half halt and count three strides to the third jump. I know this is very a detailed course but i need to tell you where to go and what to do. Then, canter towards the last jump but loosen your reins. I want to see her have full movement with her head. This is very tricky. Most rider will lean foward too much. I want you to lean slightly foward, the jump isn't big enough to lean foward alot." Taylor said, smiling at Dolly and Sasha.

''You started great then you lost focus. You let Dolly loose focus also. Next time, make her stay focused all along. Walk her a couple laps and do it again. This time, i want to see your 150%.'' Eleanor said, lowering her head.

Eleanor nodded. Eleanor Caice was very severe. Rarely you'd get a complement. ''Better, but very quick. My estimated time was 1 minute and you did 53 seconds. That is way too fast. Even if she really is into you cannot let her win. You need to control the pace because if it was any quicker, she would've risked an injury at her speed. But better technique overal. And i have to admit you guys are a great team. Now, i'm sure Dolly is tired to slow her down to a walk and show me an extended walk.'' Eleanor said.


Brodie I LOVE HORSES :)  (canterwoodcrestlover) | 51 comments sasha nodded she walked dolly and moved her into an extened walk, sasha relaxed in the saddle as she walk dolly around

Brodie I LOVE HORSES :)  (canterwoodcrestlover) | 51 comments sasha nodded egered dolly into a canter her in a lap, sasha relaxed in the saddle and enjo dolly's smooth fun canter she loved cantering. after they were done they halted and patted dolly's sweely neck

Eleanor jumped. Yelling at her much?!
''Brodie. Get out of my class and come back when you have a proper attitude.'' she said, walking towards Dolly and leading her out. ''IF, you would've said it nicely, i would've teached you, but now, i'M sorta kinda mad. Have you learned about this thing called politeness? Guess not. Now,when your ready, your going to come back and apologize. Do you understand me?''

''Forget it,'' Eleanor said, rubbing her hand on her head. ''Just-''
A rider came in with his horse. The rider himself was pretty cute. He had brown hair with blue eyes and straw was covering his coat. He was leading a big brown horse.
''Um, Mrs. Caice. Zeus is back.'' he said, giving the reins to Eleanor.
Speechless, Eleanor grabbed the reins and dismissed the young boy, Kyle. She looked at Brodie.
''Brodie, unmount Dolly and saddle up Zeus. He isn't too big so i think Dolly's saddle and girth may fit him. A good rider can ride well with other horses too.'' Eleanor said.


Brodie I LOVE HORSES :)  (canterwoodcrestlover) | 51 comments o ok sasha dismounted and tuke the saddle off dolly and put it on zeus

( hey i have to go will you be on toworrom ?)

"Let's see. Zeus is a very excitable horse, so start by trotting him around then canter and change leads without making him trot."

Eleanor nodded and placed a few jumps.
"You can jump these. Zeus jumps about 5 feet high so let's jump him at 3. Are you okay with that?"

(Sorry I had massive exams and I had stopped reading CC. But I'm back and as happy as ever! :D )

Eleanor nodded.
"Next time, I want you to count the strides out loud and go back to the last jump. If you feel Zeus slowing down, use this crop."
Eleanor gave Sasha a crop.

"Excellent! Go to a walk to cool him down and you can leave the lesson. When is your next lesson? Oh, and Dolly is in the outdoor pasture if you need her." Eleanor said, brushing her wavy hair out of her face.
