First big space play since Pagosa

I rode Garbo today for the first time in 4 weeks!
Boy - he has a bouncy trot - way bouncier than I was used to with Heart lol. Isn't it funny I could forget something like that??

We headed out around 1.30pm and had a lovely play on the 45ft, where I very much enjoyed being Jim Carey and playing the "come here so I can spank you game". It was very effective.

Then I got on and did all my lateral rein, indirect and direct reins. Then I did some bow ties at walk/trot. Finally after about 8-10 times Garbo got the pattern and started relaxing and blowing out. Yay.

Had an awesome catch up with my friend and tried to fill her in on all my two week adventure days.

Wow, Vicki! Neat play you had and great pictures. My regards to the photographer. :)
Haven't been in Parelli for a while, as I don't have a horse of my own anymore, but am interested in the bowties. I'll have to look that one up!

thanks Jen - I shall let Michelle know :-)... Bow ties are for simple lead changes if that helps your search xx
