Jarred and I had our first ride EVER in an arena today. Its sucked for so long because we havent had the room to do anything much and I really didnt know where he was at.
Well I found out that he thinks the arena fence is going to eat him lol he had to keep a very close eye on it at all times lol scary scary fence
he trots and bends nicely around corners but don't try it at a canter lol he drops his shoulder and ups the speed but we kinda started getting that sorted before the end. He likes to go on the bit but only for a second hehehe but I don't mind cause he has little muscle at the moment and is only just learning.
I changed his bit too which has seemed to help. I had him in a snaffle but I bought him one of those french link loose ring training snaffle thingies and he loved it. He didnt throw his head or pull it down on me like he often did before and he seemed to listen to me a lot more. I am ultra happy with it
Tomorrow I am going to start lunging with the pessoa system. My friend roseanne lent me a roller today (horseland only had pony size left and im not sure that would fit a warmblood lol) so tomorrow we can start using it on the loosest set up. Yay! Can't wait! Finally I am getting to start doing some serious work with my guys and I love it
yay for me hehehehehe
