Meg and Hanna
Friday and Saturday were spent working with some students, one on one in private lessons. I got the chance to work with Meg and Hanna again and we had a great time. Last month when I worked with them we work on round pen skills, hobbling and riding. This time we work on the next phase and that is groundwork. Their horses have never been exposed to these skills, and at first, did not like the idea of being told what to do. But, as soon as Hanna and Meg got the hang of the skills, their horses started to come around. They are going to continue to work at those skills. These skills will teach their horses to calm down and learn to be controlled by their owners… Looking forward to more work with them down the road.
I got the chance to work with Louise again. Louise came off her horse awhile back and I was so proud to see her wanting to get back in the saddle. I was very proud of her, watching her work with her horse in the round pen. You could see her confidence come up as we worked. She did great, and her horses did too. Looking forward to seeing how she gets along with her boys, and how her confidence grows thru the process.
Me and Sue!
Worked with Sue and her boy Buddy. They both continue to make good progress. Sue is spending more and more time with Buddy out in the back country behind her home. Buddy is starting to work on more complicated skills like, collection for short distances at a walk and a trot. Learning to keep his nose inside the circle and keeping it there on his own.
Looking forward to spending more time with these folks. Thinking about working in their area every month so we can keep up the progress.
It is a treat to work with folks who really want to be better at their horsemanship. Can’t wait for more.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
