If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you...
Today was an extraordinary day! For the most part I rode but still did some refreshers on the ground work from yesterday. I rode all three of them today. I started with Paris, then Faith, and last but not least Storm. while I was riding Paris I did a lot of small circles at a trot making her bend to the inside. little bit later I did some side passing in both directions and then practiced my lead changes. Then I rode Faith. while riding Faith I also did some small circles at a trot making her bend to the inside. Then I practiced my lead departures and my spins. For those who don`t know what a spin is, it`s when you spin them on there hindquarters. Lastly I rode Storm. Well hears the thing though, I rode Paris and Faith in a western saddle but instead of riding Storm in a western saddle I rode her in an English saddle. I think she did pretty well for being ridden in an English saddle. At the end of the day the girls got to wear there new slinkies. For those who don`t know what a slinkie is i shall tell you what I know. A slinkie is a leotard material that goes over there heads and ties under the belly. It has eye holes and ear holes and an adjustable nose hole. It is supposed to help make there mane and forelock grow. They look like ninja`s to me!:)
I am hoping to share my horse training journey, as I start this new & exciting venture in my life.
