Well I rode Sage on Wednesday. It was very windy, cold and snowing/raining off and on. She did great though. I wanted to ride her out in the weather to see if maybe she would be goosey or not. I should of known better..she was calm and worked right through it.
We worked on transitions and speed control. She's starting to understand that once she is placed in a gait to maintain that speed.
As evening approached it turned sunny. The wind and cold was still present but I thought it'd be a good time to ride again and get some pictures. I was originally going to take a video but the wind was just too unpredictable for me to leave the camera on the tripod.
We worked on transitions a little, leg yields, side passing and collecting at the poll. After that I figured I would play halter horse with her. She did great.
I'll probably get to ride her once more tomorrow/today and then she'll have atleast another week to a week in a half off while I'm in Oklahoma/Missouri.
If I was judging the halter class she was in, she'd win, hands down. She's the perfect combination of good size and good conformation. She's stout without being bulky and she looks like she could get down and turn with the best of them.
