This week Valiosa gets to go up with me to Nancy’s indoor arena twice!
I never would have thought there’d be several opportunities to get her out so many times on a trailer like this. It has truly been awesome, and such a great way to expose her to a bit of stuff away from her our home barn!
On Tuesday, worked with her in the arena first, and then she got to practice hanging out untacked by the trailer again, while I rode Gandalf for Nancy. There’ll be more of the same this morning.
She did well, did not get stuck in any silly home-made hay nets like last time, but managed to break her baby bridle instead.
So, out of the Remont and into the cavesson bridle instead already.
Yesterday I had wonderful Christel come and visit us at home again, snapping some pictures of the
brat, young mare. Hard to focus with a new audience!
A bit of – “Talk to the hand!”
Very pretty hind frogs though.
Her canter on the lunge is really coming around.
Posting simple ridden shots tomorrow of her, at just few weeks under saddle. Young, inverted, braced, and counterbent, all at the same time.
Come on back and see them! You know you want to!
It will make you feel absolutely GREAT about your own riding.
