Cindi and Thunder!
Cindi and her boy Thunder have made some really great progress. Thunder was here with us on the ranch for a couple of months and Cindi was here every week to work with him. Thunder had a history of being hard to get along with. He too is a big horse. When he first got here he just wanted to run you over and did not really want to be told what to do. In time he settled down and gave up his place as leader in the herd.
Cindi has made some real adjustments in own thinking about horses and what they need. The result has been a huge change in Cindi and her horse.
Cindi was interested in how to tell if she was sitting in the saddle correctly at the clinic that she attended a few weeks ago. So during her private lesson we focused on that.
There is a ton of stuff out there that a person can read on how to learn to have a balanced seat while riding. I mean there is a lot of stuff out there. I don’t make that big a deal about riding. I think that most people over think the process of riding way more then they need to. If a person will have his stirrups adjusted properly and looks where they want to go, they will find that all the things the books talk about will happen naturally. This is real hard to describe in this blog, but is way easy to show in person. The key is just relax, look where you want to go, and think forward. If you and I as riders have no forward movement in our riding our horses will not move forward either. Again, this is not so easy to write about, for me, but much easier to show.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
