We currently have a festive little project going on… which kept me busy most of the weekend. I thought it might be fun to share some of the out-takes. Before I start… have to say it’s amazing what these horses will put up with (especially in the snow and wind!). My own horse would certainly not have tolerated all this. Such good ponies!
I also enjoyed a very nice ride on Mr. Afton today. Despite the intense wind, which usually makes the indoor sound like a train is going by, he was perfect. He is finally “getting” the stopping and standing thing. We also worked on trotting over poles (he’s done single poles but never several in a row), and stretching at the walk. He almost got it a couple times- putting his head down but also reaching out. I tried a little bit for the same thing at the trot, but we’re not there yet, which is fine… baby steps!
