I just have to show you..

my lovely litte horse.

This is a video of from last year of her doing her first canter after she had a fracture in one of her front legs. Even after months and months of box rest, she is so willing to work.

She really is my dreamhorse.

I am riding in a Star Trekk Espainiola (not a dressage saddle) so sorry about my seat.
Wallaby, Hidalgo13 and waresbear like this.

What a good team you are! Love seeing your gorgeous mare :)

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

She is light and balanced and a joy to watch. And you ride just beautifully! I wish I could ride that well.

Thanks everyone!

Cacowgirl, I know it's hard to believe, but Baby is actually a little filly!

People always say that fillies are calm and nice. I say... not so much.

Here is an other video, it is from the third lesson we took after her injury.

And here is Noblessa, a mare I had in training. In this video I had been riding her for about 3 weeks.

When I started with her she was more like a newly started three year old baby that panicked when you asked
here to canter and trotted around with her nose in the sky in a slow motion. If you compared her to a snail, the snail would have been the fastest of the two.

She is superfat. She has had a few foals and has not been ridden for a few years and I just went out in the field looked at the horses and I thought,
that's a pretty nice looking horse, and I asked the owner if I could ride her for a little while.

She is running away a little bit, but I prefer that. If you have a horse that want's to move forward all the time asking "How much faster do you want me to go?"
every time you use the leg, instead of a horse that says "Ok I go a little bit faster, no more no less...".

When it's time to collect a horse that is used to move forward all the time and has it "built in" it's easy to ask the horse to collect itself.

But in this video we are just building up some trust - she learning to be in her "frame" by herself, with only light contact in the reins.
