Serpentines

Today was Charm's first day to try serpentines. She is a coming three-year-old Icelandic Horse.

I gathered up some trash cans and a box that my husband was about to cut up into the recycle bin, and set them in a line.

Charm checked out each obstacle (there must have been something edible in one of the cans as it kept drawing her attention).

We practiced weaving the barrels a couple of times, and then grabbed a quick video:

She tried to rush past the wrong side of the last obstacle, but took the correct way at the last second.

Awww charm is lovely. How big is she? I was doing alot of serpentines last season with my Fell in style and performance classes - he picked it up really quickly! Supprised me! Its all about co-ordination when your doing serpentines under saddle.

Well done Charm!! When are you breaking her? :)

Be careful when practicing serpentines. They can be very difficult on the joints, much like a 20 meter circle, especially on a developing horse.
