Late afternoon/evening will forever be my favorite time of day to ride!
The newest thing I’m working on with Poika is vertical flexion. He gives to pressure really well laterally, but vertically is a whole different story. Part of me wonders if he was ever even taught it because he doesn’t act like he has. But he’s picking it up fairly quickly 🏼 (considering our circumstances... check last post 🙂) Im hoping to either get some GoPro videos or videos with my phone on Saturday, or maybe both We’ll see!
Quick story On Tuesday I brought Poika out on trail by himself and he was doing really well walking and trotting so I decided to ask him to lope down a stretch of grass and he completely took off galloping He was spooking at literally every dark bush, leaf and bug mid gallop. Thankfully he wasn’t completely out of control (so I don’t know if “took off” is the right way to describe it ) and I was able to pull him up, but I learned that we need to work on loping calmly while out on trail by ourselves 😬
I hope you all are having a good week, tomorrow is Friday!! 🏼 - 7 hours ago
