After Stella had a ride on Monday I took Garbo out for a bit more of a ride. The last time we rode Garbo had his ears back and tail swishing a bit when I asked for him to go away from the tie up area. Today - I had a bum bag full of carrot pieces and I rewarded him at every barrell, clay pile, after a jump, and he was a different horse. Full of energy, asking questions, shall I canter here? canter there? It was so nice. As I said we even jumped over my little jump I have set up in the paddock. It's about a foot high! I used my saddle as I have not yet attempted canter in the bareback pad, but we still just had the halter and lead rope.
No piccies sorry.
