Instructor's Pic of the Week

This week's pic features green level Equestrian Team rider Brooklyn Nielsen on her welsh pony Denmark. It was taken at a Valley View 2-phase schooling show last November. It was their first show together!

You can see that Brooklyn is on the correct diagonal for her circle at A, because she is rising when the outside front leg is about to step forward. I also like that she is stretching into her heels as she rises for the post. This grounds her position and makes it stronger.

Although her pony is nervous and distracted, Brooklyn is keeping a soft contact with his mouth and staying relaxed in her position. If she were to round her shoulders or pinch her lower leg, Denmark would be more nervous because he could feel the tension in her body. She is doing a great job of riding a pony she isn't used to yet and who isn't used to her!
