This morning we rode in the Big Top and worked on sideways, backwards, then canter transitions.
We concentrated on miles per hour. Ie walk 8 miles per hour, then 9, then trot at 10,11,12,13,14 - then back to 10 etc.
That way when you ask for canter you're not rushing them into it.
Ours was rather messy, but we had a couple of nice moments.
Then we tried walk to canter. I'd never done that before. But we did it today!! So pleased.
After our ride before lunch Ryan did a demo with an LBI. Na'vi. It was so cool to see him get into her mind without tagging the ground or being a crazy person.
After lunch we did 'box' simulations. We're building a box around the horse and the horse stays within.
Then we went out to practise everything again.
