on board

Today was warm and I couldn't resist a little sit on after a lunge. It felt so nice to be back on board and he was pretty chilled, finished with a short trot (a bit rushed ).

To work on...strengthen with some more lunge/in hand and light ridden work so that I can push the nose out a bit in the stretching down work. Promise I won't be boring with vids every time  it's just good to capture this new beginning.

Hi Trudi girl!
I loved this work...oh Moo, good boy!

From a fence post in France...to cute! My sissy just got me this neat little tri-pod about the size of my hand, with moveable legs. Soon, if I figure out how to do videos like you, you'll see us from a tree branch-in Oregon!

Thanks Rising Rainbow!

KC, look forward to vids from your tree branch very soon :-)

looking good after the time off.

i find online vids always look a bit rushed, it's as if the process of uploading them speeds them up a tad, so bearing that in mind, i didn't think his trot was that rushed at all....

like the bridle!

I watched again and love how Moo tracks up and Rhythem may be fast...but he tracks up so nice, a half halt & circle will cure..

I have a sister that is so darned traditional with the bit and "on the bit" she says it is a jaw thing- that can't happen with out a bit....I'm not taking that end.

I see yours accepting the contact, moving into the contact nicely. They can be '"on the Bit" with bitless, as I believe it is a "whole body movement" that makes them come from behind and under themselves and into your soft fingers. RIGHT?

Thanks..always learning form you~ Love the constant videos..if that is what you did all the time-I for one would love it!
