Successful Riding Today

The photo was taken be me during the winter, 2007. It is a driftwood horse in front of the Rhinebeck Tack Shop.

Well, this will be a quick post but I wanted to share. Today I put together a round pen like the one in Virginia. I played with Whiskey but we quickly found a bees nest. So, working on on-line transitions was out--at least in the round pen. Anyhow, I decided to tack him up and see what happened. I saddled him up with my Theraflex pad, English saddle, and put on his Parelli natural hackamore. I decided that we'd mosey ride around the property. And, we did! No antics, no biting, jsut nice forward movement, stops to graze, and lots of fun. I had the best ride on him since being in NY! I believe that our relationship is just getting stronger and stronger. I also have been careful to be certain I am using the L2 techniques (especially for his horsenality, patience and time). Anyhow, just wanted to share. I look forward to more exporation and success with him--and passing L2 this fall. LOL
