Totally none horse related, this video is great!
Also, this is an awesome blog post!!! Thanks to She Moved to Texas for sharing it!
Another great article on the GM clinic written by Dom Schramm.
Hacked last night.
I am starting ever hack/ride with moving his hip around. It's definitely getting better!
Other then that I just hacked around.. he was HIGH so I was more just working on getting him out, moving and keeping his brain busy.
We were both quite sweaty by the end of the ride- a nice 20 min hack turned into a 45-50 min no walk break ride lol.
I rode in the Ride Light pad that Lyssette wrote about. I can't say he felt smoother but I did notice I was able to sit the trot better then my normal bouncing (Henry has a HORRIBLE trot to sit- my trainer won't even trot him when she rides b/c it hurts her back). I think I'll try and ride in it again on another day that she isn't using it. I plan to get one for my birthday though, thanks hubby!
Lesson tonight, off Wednesday, hack/lunge Thursday, hack Friday and lesson Saturday.
