...after the house guests have departed! A busy time has left me little time to blog but it's been a time of visiting favourite old places and finding new gems; 'photos to follow later in the week. I've managed a healthy workload with the boys and taken full advantage of the most glorious spring weather.
Moo has worked well in the school, the big theme being transitions :-) and we've hacked (had to lead for a couple of minutes while he got over leaving home LOL) and played in the fields, walking down the hills and trotting up them...hopefully building up his 'carrying' ability behind.
Chapsi has lunged and worked in-hand, walked out in-hand and played with some clicker work; I've continued to sit on him a couple of times a week and he is trying really hard to 'get it'. I'm still only using voice commands from the saddle, one of my pet hates is 'stuffy' horses and I want to save all the physical aids for finesse and not getting him forwards. It's a game of patience, ask forwards, wait for a reaction .... WAIIIIIIT ...reaction, yay, click! So it's only ten minutes maximum but oh it feels so nice.
