Me and Matt!
Had a good day with both Casino and Pepe.
Worked with Pepe in the round pen and getting him to move off the pressure of my leg. He is doing better then last week, but still has a way’s to go, but good progress.
Casino is doing better. Trying to get him to relax when there are things going on around him that he does not understand or has never seen.
All of the things that I did yesterday with both horses can, and in my opinion, should be done from the ground first before you try to do them in the saddle. These are things that I teach at the clinics we put on. I may not show folks the things exactly like I did them yesterday but the principle I teach. Then with a little imagination a person can create a program that can really benefit the horse.
Today will be a long ride for Casino. He is to a place in his training that long rides and wet saddle blankets are in order. Pepe will get ridden in the arena. We will work on flexing and more control.
Time to get to it.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
