In the meantime we have been going to lots of training which is not actually a bad thing as Maisie and I continue to build our new partnership.
As she continues to relax more on the flat her neck is starting to stretch out and she is less tucked in which is fantastic. We can’t maintain it consistently yet and she does slip back into her old habit of curling her neck in but there is a visible improvement which is great. We have been out to a few local dressage competitions scoring low/mid 60s. Positive comments from the judges and once Maisie can relax and show off her paces rather than going round like a sewing machine I know the scores will improve!
