Yesterday my neighbor Mark came down with his horse so I thought it might be a good time to take Bitsy for a ride outside. It was obvious that she has NO experience outside the round pen or arena. She started out not wanting to go where I asked her, but got better by the time we got back to the barn.
Today we will spend time in the arena working on learning to follow her nose and flexing to a stop. She has a long way to go but we have made some pretty big strides the pass couple of days.
The new GRAY is spending time in the round pen getting comfortable with his surroundings. We will start to work today on his ground skills and making sure he can catch me. Was going to start with him yesterday but by the time we got back to the barn the wind was blowing pretty hard.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
