Level 2 with Bailey - July

Posted by 2legsue, 07 July 2017 · 99 views

How does another month slip past so quickly  :o
 
What did we accomplish in June: ~ 2 play days which included braving the cold &
- working on the longer lines with the 22' around the neck
- a trail walk in hand away from and out of sight of the other horses with no calling out by me or Bailey ^_^
- riding and finding the centre on a very stiff horse and working on transitions from my seat on the circle and the rail; simple leads helped him to soften and our session finished with a softer horse and less leaning in  :thumbsup:
- riding at home and discovering there are horse eating gremlins down the back of our paddocks  :huh:  so filmed A8 without fence and hence no straight lines (nor focus perhaps  <_< )
 
Thank goodness for lessons with Mel to finish off the month  :clap:
- L3 ground improving our connection, our backups and our sends- out and around at a longer distance with rope around neck
Really pleased with his ability to take the offer of a narrow jump :clapping:
- L2 ridden working on the correct diagonals (still my problem :whistling: ) and working these up into the correct canter leads on the circle before taking it out onto the rail and straight lines - Bailey was however much softer and not fussed at being by himself with me - maybe our confidence in each other is changing  :yinyang: 
also looked at the soft feel, rebounds and box homework - perhaps time to submit A10  ;)
 
Reflecting on our 90 day plan - a bit slow on the progress, but still helping to move forward and find some good things coming along, plus the sticking bits to work on  -_-  
not to mention the joys of winter and unrugged pony  :P
