  10. We had an lovely day with our horses at Fingal beach yesterday. The calmness & maturity of our older QS horses were a great support to Eli & Nevada who are at the beginning of their QS journey. Having developed our connection & leadership with our horses also gave them confidence. We had to walk along a footpath & cross a road. It was Nevada’s first time at the beach & the surf was pounding. Nevertheless, using offer & release & the calmness of the other horses, Nevada quickly gained confidence & happily walked out into the surf even with waves crashing into his side. We encountered families, dogs, planes & more and yet our guys walked on relaxed. When people ask why I do the QS program, this is why!

    The World's Biggest Play Day

    We had so much fun today for our WBPD. There will be more to come, but here is just a sample,

    Refining my contact

    Great question Jen, and I am looking forward to responses. I am working on this one too. I have to change my muscle memory and ride lightly and maintain lightness in my reins. Whilst my reins need to be short enough to have contact I keep the same feel and ask Dusty to soften laterally if she is heavy on one or both of the reins. My thoughts are that Clancy will give you soft feel and lift through his back without any tension and with a loop in the reins and wow doesn't it look lovely when you see it! I know Meredith has said and has demonstrated a horse in collection bb and bridle less. I think it would be a progression as Clancy build his emotional and physical fitness. Congratulations on your progress.

    Was it a try or not?? 20/03/2018

    Hi Luna, sounds like you are on the right track and Darcy is giving you some good tries. I think Jen's suggestion is a good one, keep rewarding the tries and maybe hold the flex until you see him lower his head even a little and then release. Sounds like your timing is good. One tip is that whilst you keep asking, the ask doesn't need to get bigger or louder, just keep your ask the same and time the release when Darcy gives you a try. I would be looking for a little progress with each session. Its not unusual that some horses can brace up emotionally and physically when we ask them to go faster. I think you are one the right track and if you ask him to laterally soften before he transitions up to trot and eventually canter, Darcy will start to travel with a lower head carriage. Sounds like with your help he is learning to carry himself in a more balanced way
