In combination with "bit-bootcamp", I really am working on her lope.
Ya know, cross firing, hopping in the back end, head up-in-the-air, charging around, needing to be babysat... yaaaaaaaaa.......
A nice man who comes to the restaurant I work at explained how they get their horses to pick up leads and relax (they ride horses much like Squiggy - go all day kind of horses)
After a come to Jesus meeting in the fallow field and bit-bootcamp, she picks up her leads the first time AND relaxes. And strides out like we all now she can! There is still a bit of baby sitting to be done, but she's learning that loose rein is good and doesnt mean "zooooooom" Ooooh yeah!
Just working on a video, but ya'll want a screenshot I'm sure.
I'm so happy I can show both leads!!!!!!!!! You have no idea.
