Had a great weekend working with some students in the Membres Valley.
Andrea has been working really hard this past year getting her horse, Bittsy ready to ride. She has worked really hard at being a good leader and it paid off.
Andrea worked her horse in the round pen, saddled, and was doing a great job so I asked her if she was ready to get in the saddle. She said yes and so she did. Rode her horse around the round pen working on some exercises like, flexing to a stop, transitions from a walk to a trot and back again. She did a great job and is ready to continue Bittsy’s education.
Worked with Sue and Buddy. You will remember that Buddy was here for 30 days before Sue bought him. She took him home and has been working with him as you can see in the picture. She was having a little trouble with him and was not sure how to over come some things. We worked together horse back and Buddy made some really good improvements.
Both of these horses have a long way to go, but their owners are making sure they both have the very best start.
Then went up the road a few miles to work with Meg and Hanna. They had lots of questions and we had a great time. Both Meg and Hanna have done a lot in the horse world and have had horses, just about all their lives. They were both very impressed at how they could get their horses to settle and relax, while still doing exercises in the arena, something that had not happened before. I’m looking forward to working with both of them and other members of their family in the months to come.
A good job by all.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
