No one owns the perfect horse.
This girl right here, far from perfect. I’m working with her to instill some fun. Something different from her usual dressage. Show her that she can move with power…
Her canter has been very unconvincing. Her walk weak-feeling, a sort of “bedroom slippers and robe” vibe.
Some jumping on her own has really helped set up some confidence in her self 🙂 Especially in the walk.
After the ride and a shower, she sashays away. Her walk swinging. It has developed and strengthened.
She looks like a 20-something at Chevron. You know, that one, always feeling a bit too sexy pumping gas. Yep, that’s her walk out to pasture.
Blurry photobomb of her latest bunny hops – short and easy. A few takeoffs, no sweat.
Being creative with the few props I have, she’s jumped cross rails, an upright, a water ditch with a tarp (yeah, ’cause that’s so believable…), a “wall” with a tarp, a makeshift oxer.
She’s doing absolutely fabulous! The slightly wider jumps make a better takeoff, not so close and upright. Even better if I could bring myself to setting up the ground pole at the correct distance. It’s a work in progress.
Of course even better on her own, off the lunge line. Go grey mare!
Love the imperfect perfect mare!
