Oh lord, I am becoming hopeless...
Anyway, 3 days ago I finally hopped on that spastic one and he did beautifully.
No arguments or 'back chatting'. YAY! He was beautiful. We did a long warm up and then about 30 mins of trot. Lots of trotting. We did circles, flexing his neck to both side and a little side passing. very very happy.
The next day, more trotting but this time, he was wondering about what else he could do... like how to get to the gate. Huff. Not to much of an argument, but I can feel it budding. So, we worked on that and it got better.
He had yesterday off so he is in a happy mood.
Last night is rained a lot so no riding today. I am pooped anyways. I have many many assignments and tests so that is taking it out of me.
Hopefully he will behave next time and we can carry on with our so far good work.
Till next time,
There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky
