So today Gillian came out to help me w the re-training of Petey since Swoop twisted his foot last night. At this point for Petey we are just working on getting him to flex and relax his neck and back and to carry his own weight and not lean on the bit or your hands.. I believe the ride went well. Unfortunately it was getting too dark to get the pic of our final canter which was the best ever. The day started out with a lunge to loosen Petey's back and for whatever reason he decided to freak out and run lol but once we got him back I got on for a minute to make sure he would not be crazy. Then Gillian got on and worked on suppling exercises at the walk and a little trot then I got back on for the finish!
**please no comments on not wearning helmets or on the way I am training as he has had multiple bad experiences that I have spent time trying to correct**
More to come tomorrow... and of course in the future
