And its really nice to see some safe tricks, most would have rearing up and what not, which is not anything you would want your horse to do.. :P
Keep going and share more ;)
P.s. I would like to know how you teach the stretch..
Haha, I'll get you off that pink cloud right away. Someday I'm going to learn her to rear too :P But I think it should be done when you're both ready. We did it once when she offered it. Now she doesn't want to do it anymore, so I don't even try, let her be :) If she's not ready yet we won't do it. It's physically a hard excercise too so.
I am ready for it because I know perfectly how she is and I am concequent and not afraid to put her on her place (if she does it while not asked, you should do something about it. Not just let her do it).
We're also practicing the classical bow, but she finds it really hard. She is a reeeeaaaalllyyyyy slow learner hahaha :')
And yes, it took some time for this, since we started from her running away from me, bucking, turning her butt to me, biting, etc etc. I couldn't imagine then that I ever could free lunge her. So I'm really proud of her
About the stretch, I once typed something about how I learned that to her, so I'm going to look it up haha. Then I don't have to type it again
CLaPorte432, aww thank you! ♥
Inga, hahaha, he is really cute indeed
