I can't help myself, I'm so proud of how my little guy is going! I have finally found a clinician that I REALLY click with and he's decided to come to my area every month if possible
Anyone who's followed my story with Bob knows that he's a very sensitive little warmblood that has been passed rider to rider, no one has been able to get through to him. When I started with him, we had no go forward button, no response to a whip other than a grunt and kick and in general, zero work ethic.
Well, this man has been the first person who has REALLY cracked Bob. FINALLY I have found someone that can help me progress on him. For the first time, I actually had his hind legs and a genuine reaction to the leg with no resistance.
Sorry that the photo's are so blurry, they're video stills as the actual photos were terrible (my camera does not like indoors).
And the most exciting part (which has turned me into a child on Christmas Eve
), during the lesson the clinician (who is one of Australia's top dressage riders and trainers and has done most of his education in Germany) continued to tell me and the spectators that I am a 'very good jockey' and this horse does not do my riding justice. At the end of the lesson he took me aside and said that he would put me on any one of his horses any day of the week, and if I ever want to do some work for him, there is an open invite for me to go up and train there
Will add video shortly
