    Well the continuing training of Stan to use leg cues. Is continuing and it is me that requires the training as I suspect Stella knows.

    Yesterdays ride was in a pine forest so the trees were close and a lot of logs and branches laying around and of course general bush and the low branch about 22 hands up the trunk. Leg cues I tried and Stella was responding without the reins or was she just ducking around trees. But it did remind me of why we rely on reins more than leg cues. Riding in bush and in very hilly country in close contact with scrub, gorse, low branches and especally going down steep inclines one can not use leg cues as the legs are out infront by the horses head. However to those that have given me good advise I intend to continue the learning process. More strings to the bow one might say. And Stella was perfect no spooking, bolting, and even took the point for a spell. She is getting better evey day.
