Praising my horse for his good efforts
As my faithful readers will know by now, we’ll be moving in late July. Joli, my handsome Portugese horse, will go ahead of hus and transfer to his new boarding place next Saturday
So today was the perfect occasion for have our last coaching session until later this summer. I’ve been off all week and have ridden on most days, so it was time for a little fine tuning with our instructor, Nicolas
My hobbyist photographer friend Claude was here also, to document the event
All the work we’ve done for the past 10 months is really starting to come together and yield good progress, which is really encouraging
By that I mean a calm, willing and engaged horse, trying to please and seeking the proper attitude
And yes, the spin is coming along a little better, too. Still a couple of millions repetitions away from proper form, but he’s accepting it more and trying harder
This for instance, is defninitely a new level of effort that he didn’t give before
still chaotic, but Rome wasn’t built in a day, right ?
I’m happy with his tries, anyway
and sweaty !
Don’t tell as it’s a secret, but one’s horse’s back is one of the best place to be 😉
