Dressage Debacle

The test didn't go well. It may have been something to do with Posselq being there to watch - but much as I would like to blame somebody / something else I'm afraid I can't really! It was purely rider error. In the warm-up in the in door arena she was as good as gold - working soft and round and doing everything right - even being rhythmical in her canter (what??? Phoebe???) - but once we got outside - well - it was a whole different story. She was strong - and I mean strong. The canter was done to the sounds of me chanting 'F**k - F**k - F**k - with every stride - and the downward transition to trot ??? - I nearly went over her head. I think it may be time to hang up my stirrups and take up cake decorating.......I can't even bring myself to tell you my score - it was that bad :(
