Snow. LOTS of snow. It seems a blizzard is coming.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

Very nice! Have fun

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

I had been working with Snickers for a while (couple of months) without the assistance of my trainer because of money issues. Anyway, Snickers used to fall on the forehand very much and didn't want to involve his hind legs at all, so it was a major issue in our training programme. I didn't feel we were going anywhere with that, so I gradually switched from riding to groundwork (also because he needed less exercise because of malnutrition in the stable of his previous owners), putting a stress on ground poles, elevated ground poles and different exercises to make him more supple and willing to go. Last weekend my trainer visited us in our new barn, saw us riding and complimented that he was no longer on his forehand and was involving his hind legs noticeably! Huzzah! All that groundwork really pays off!

Thats good :) hard work pays off... also I have to say I know english isnt your first language,maybe it is, but I was just assuming from where you live, that your english is really good

Make it idiot proof and someone will make a better idiot.

Nice to hear that, gingerscout. :) English is really not my native language, but I studied in an English kindergarden, English school and an English philology bachelor's programme in the uni - hard work pays off, as you said before. :)

Btw, I love your signature - it makes me chukkle every time I see it. So true!

littleredridinghood, welcome to the forum! I'm Saranda (also known as Laura in real life, lol ) and I've been posting here rather recently, but I've already learned how great and informative this forum is, and how friendly the people are! Hope you enjoy your stay. :)

I suggest you bump the thread, gingerscout! But sorry, I'm no good in giving advice about feeding yearlings.
