“A racehorse that consistently runs just a second faster than another horse is worth millions of dollars more. Be willing to give that extra effort that separates the winner from the one in second place.” H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
"We're Going to the Farm...
We'll see the chickens and the ducks,
We'll hear the "quacks" and all the "clucks"!
We'll ride a big tractor, and feed a tall horse,
But the best will be the goats, of course!!!" Hilary Martin
Got btwn 7-10 rides on her now, depending on whether you consider bareback strolls around the property a 'ride' or not.....she is coming along well moving forward at the walk and trot...she is also leg yielding as well (sidepass, pivot on the haunches, pivot on the forehand)...here's a clip of us under saddle yesterday:
Here is a clip of her getting her harness on...note that her first direction was a bit smoother than the second...so far the most resistance I get from her is when her and I have a disagreement as to who is actually in charge of ending the workout....she likes it to be her, and this just illustrates me working her thru that....such a Diva! Her, not me...OK, maybe me too...enjoy:
Finally, this is CJ getting some practice in for his leadline debut on Ms. B at our next ODPOAC show June 16.17!
Stay tuned for another update at about 30 rides! Should have a good amount of progress to report at that time!
