walk on by

I'm whispering this in case Horse of Course has unblocked her ears! shhh ''it's been another gorgeous day''
So, I rode Moo early and we walked. He was chilled but rather active so we worked on slowing the walk (cue the cordeo, how fab is it to be able to slow the shoulder) with the seat taking energy up rather than letting it forwards. Lots of lateral work and he didn't seem stiff at all.
Chapsi worked at liberty again and I took some vid, mainly from the fence, but for some reason the second two vids haven't uploaded to youtube yet and I can't be bothered to move my backside upstairs to check the other computer to find out why. So here are the first two to be going on with...

Thanks for the videos! I particularly enjoyed the targeting one.

Things are lightening up, today we see the sun for the first time in weeks - hoooray!!

Chapsi is a beautiful horse. Good work too!

That looks great, he's so calm and focussed. :-)

Trudi - Great vid. Were you in what you call your 'area of influence'? Was so looking forward to our school being workable. Might have been very wishful thinking! Good to hear your lovely calm voice again.

Wind blowing up again. More rain tomorrow - just in time for dog training!

Thanks guys. Glad to hear the sun hasn't forgotten Norway!

Yes Sheila we were indeed in our area, it's only cones so he can (and does) leave if he wishes when at liberty :-)

allison says, good but an awful lot of biscuits in there (she doesn't get the click/treat thing and takes the whotsit ...)
