I'm so excited right now! If you have been following my other threads, you know that it's been hell What I like to call "bit drama" has occured, and then the usual problems everyone has to work through has come up, but I have just felt like we couldn't get through them. I had the other trainer at my barn ride my horse this morning, and am thrilled to say that it went fabulous! She thinks she can fix our long term lead change problem, and all the other problems we have We have informed my other trainer that we will be switching trainers for a little bit to see how these things go so we can work through these problems. I really like this other trainer! I've known her for a long time, but today was the first time she has worked with me/my horse. She has been training horses for a VERY long time and doesn't believe in beating horses to get them to do what we want.
She also noticed he was stiff in his left hind, so wel'll be taking him to the ciro Tuesday to get that fixed. I didn't notice it before but she let me hop on him when she was done and I felt it once she pointed it out! It feels like he's reaching nicely with his right hind but with his left he's only stepping half way. Guess he's just a little stiff is all. Nothing our lovely ciro can't fix
So anyway, I'm going to begin lessoning with her so she can teach me the correct way to do this, and along the way I'll be learning good horsemanship! Something I should have learned 6 or 7 years ago when I started riding, but never had the correct trainer. I've gone through a lot of trainers searching for the right one But yeah, I'm UBER excited and can't wait!
I'll try to keep everyone updated, we'll just have to wait and see how things go!
Just wanted to share my excitement (and relief for that matter)! Cookies if you got through that! =]
