So Much Work

Rijkens and I are continuing to get a feel for each other.  During our lesson today at Belle Terre with Lurena Bell, we worked on suppling and throughness exercises that included shoulder in, renvers, and travers.  I must be quick to give especially in the left rein, and it is Rijkens' responsibility to accept the right rein as well as the left.

Lurena reminded us that particularly while schooling, Rijkens should say "How much angle would that be?" for the shoulder in, renvers and travers. 

 "How much angle would you like?"
