3 days till Beth Clininc!

So I rode the boy yesterday, such a warm beautiful day! We both enjoyed the nice weater!
Got a ton of hair from his shedding little self! He throughly enjoyed that!
He 100% there with me for our ride and we really got somewhere! Really happy!

Today I want to work on our leg yields, more canter transitions and finish pulling his mane, get his bridle path back and presentable.
Need to really go o er my tack and clean it and gather the laundry I need to do!

Very excited!
Talked to Beth last night and she will help unload the twit if needed as I told her how he can blast out and the last thing we all want is to pay, get there and have him ger hurt unloading!

Till later :)

Back home and back to work

I decided to give Oliver a few days off after working so hard at Beth's for the two days and the long haul.

Today we went out for a trail ride, he was so happy to go out and was very good
Lots of working trot and hill work and some canter work!
I could feel a difference even with it just being the 1st ride back since the clinic and was so happy with the feeling!

Tomorrow morning arena ride :)

Well today was a good easy ride, only 20 minutes.

I can tell I am really really hesitant to push him up into the big trot I had when we were at Beth's and I'm disappointed with myself,if I want to go anywhere with Oliver I need that trot every ride.

Our canter depart and 90% of the canter to the left was great! Soft, relaxed, with him, straight 85% of our circles, I was really working on my open hips/legs but supportive lower leg and sitting up and back, half halting him back tor rebalance and he felt really free through the shoulers and looser in the hips.

So to the right I need to do spirals, leg yeilds, lots of rebalancing and trantions before canter. I need to push his hip out, direct the shoulders straighter. Meaning I need to sit up, drive him with my hips and really sit up and back. Both our weak side is to the right for sure...

I'll be back out tomorrow, will try for pictures/video but so hard when your alone...ugh

Here is the link to the clinic with Beth

Big Day for Little Oliver! Pictures and video coming!
