Bitsy’s mom came to visit over the weekend and got a chance to watch me work with her horse. Andrea has had Bitsy in my program for a while now and has made a big part of what I am doing now with her so much easier on me. Andrea had her doing most of the round work pretty good. Andrea had Bitsy saddling and unsaddling, down. She was having a little trouble with the bitting process but she had done enough that now we just have to keep working with her.
She continues to make good progress, Bitsy that is, and today we will continue to get her trusting and relaxing with she is working. I now have her jumping barrels, standing on a blue tarp resting, and she is starting to work well with the other exercises. Most of that does not sound like a bit deal but last week you couldn’t have gotten her close to a blue tarp, let alone cross a blue tarp..
Will probably start riding her a little the middle or end of this week. We will see how that goes.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
