First trot!!!

I put together a little video of the work I've caught on tape with Eve in the last couple weeks! Let me know what you think!

Great job!!! She looks great and her trot looks like a dream to ride.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Thanks! Her trot is a little choppy but I think that's just her age and my weight for the moment...hoping she'll figure out where her feet are and get a little smoother!

Great job! Is that you actually riding? What brand of helmet are you riding with?

Yes, that is me riding her...I'm not sure the brand name of the helmet I use but I'll check tonight! Why do you ask?

That was a really GOOD video :)
I loved it, Im curious if you used the side reins before or if someone helped you :) ?
( I need someone to teach me to use side reins lol, don't want to risk ruining my horse)
But you are doing a great job on her ! Keep us updated :)

This is actually the first time I'm using sidereins, but my best friend has used them on numerous horses before and is guiding me through the process! Start with them long, not even making contact so if they life their head they feel the tension. As you work with them every day or every second day, gradually increase the tightness. I was told to always have the outside one or two holes longer to allow bending in the neck...

Macabre, mind taking over explaining? :)
