… Or close.
All the organisation, meetings with the banks, counselors, and all that jazz, do take a lot of time, and energy, and I’ve hardly had any time to see, let alone ride, my horse lately. That sucks
Ok, now you can take a break. You can notice the new saddle here. It’s a Westwood “butterfly reiner” and it offers amazingly close contact with the horse. Like riding bareback, but without the risk of falling off !
We worked on backing up as well, which he did much more willingly than he had recently (thanks Patrick Hopgood for the video demo, it works wonders)
Thanks to horseworld celebrity Stacy Westfall for making a blogpost to answer (yet another) one of my questions. Her kind and well thought advice proved superbly helpful when dealing with a crabby young horse. And, icing on the cake, next Sunday we’ll be working with our real world coach, Nicolas Podetti. Stay tuned !
