Sadly was not able to ride today because my little dog hurt himself somehow and needed to be taken into the vet, off island!
Good news is he will be okay.
These next three weeks and four days will be hard work, but I want to get the very best out of the clinic!
My Goals for the Clinic:
Get my inside hand to stop trying to take over the world....okay just my rein lol
Get our simple changes down completely, correct going in, through the change and onto the new lead
When ask for the halt, be able to keep still for "5 missisippi's" and go into the next gait still on the contact and coming through from behind.
Get our hind engine more constant through trantions, no more falling forward, either of us!
I think those four goals are the key points to getting all I can out of my two days.
Just got the very exciting good news yesterday that Charlie Pinnio from California will be more then likely coming out 2-3 times this spring or summer, somthing I'm really hoping happens. Charlie has an amazing way of explaining things and getting results by the end of the lesson, stress free too! I'll post some pictures from our last clinic from last summer.
With all the riding and hard work I have been putting into Oliver's training I want this year to count and have something to show for it!
I am really looking forward to spring, shedding season when the transformation so to say comes to see all shiny new coat come in to show off all the muscle we have built! Right now it just looking like I'm riding a big dust bunny around that was under some couch for far to long!
Off to bed with me, got to ride tomorrow!
Here's to seeing a difference from last year to this year!
