    Annie's First Ride!

    Rode Annie for the first time yesterday! We've been working on groundwork and desensitizing from all the terrifying things around my arena [she spooks at her own shadow ]. I was kind of nervous at the start when one of the barn cats decided the second we got walking was the perfect time to race through the arena and up a tree but she only jumped to the side a bit! Be prepared to start seeing tons of pictures of this mare in the coming months LOL

    Sorry for the big pictures!

    Good job Annie! She looks very relaxed with you, that ground work looks like it definitely paid off! Good luck with her!

    Nice Job!! I can tell you've done your preparation groundwork. One suggestion--drop the flash noseband and replace it with a leather strap connecting like a curb chain, to keep the bit from slipping through her mouth. IMO she should be allowed to learn to keep her mouth shut with the bit.
    I think you have a keeper!! =D

    I usually don't ride with a flash, but I put one on her because she'd open her mouth to avoid contact with the bit. I think it's because she's not used to the bit but she doesn't do it when I'm lungeing her or doing ground work. But it was set on the loosest setting and wasn't clamping her mouth shut, don't worry! I plan on not using one once she gets used to contact, so maybe for a couple more rides. But thanks for the advice!

    I do too! I started my QH gelding last summer and he's coming along great!

    Yeah, she was great except when she kept wanting to trot and avoided my contact. But that's all with starting young horses.

    She was almost feral when I got her because her last owners bred her and pretty much let her sit for the most part so she has her crazy "OMG the world is after me!!" moments
