little update I've recently had several canters on each rein and am now off the lunge in walk and trot.
I've also been hacking him out
Today we hacked out in howling winds (I nearly chickened out but my instructor MADE me, she came out on her connie with me), we had a bit of a disasterous start as we decided riding along the edge of a field would be better than the road, unfortunatly Reeco sank up to his hind fetlocks in mud and that paniced him slightly, the man behind the hedge making monkey noises realy didnt help either and for one moment I did think he was going to go, but credit to him he tucked himself into winnies bottom (Winnie being my instructors connie) and kept going at walk.
We then got back onto the road and he settled beautifully, well untill the blizzard hit us! There was so much snow I couldnt see where we were going and Reeco kept trying to turn his bum into it.
We got home in one piece (somewhat frozen) and not having hit the deck so I'm counting it as progress!!!
RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
