Had the bodywork and careful rides eliminated the bolting or was he still feeling frustrated and overwhelmed? Or in pain? Or just being an asshole?
|not perfect, but not bolting. I'll take it.|
It wasn't an exciting ride and it wasn't our best work ever. We just slowed everything down and did a simple w/t/c both ways.
Yes canter to the right.
And guess what?
I had my horse back.
|he can horse again|
In fact, he was quiet enough that Alyssa got to hop on and take him for a little spin. I mean, she probably always could, but no one makes grabby hands over... well. You know. The stuff we were doing last week.
We have lots to work on and I'm glad we're ready to get back to it.
Though now I have to ask myself: sparkle dressage bridle or jump saddle lorenzinis????????
The struggle is real.
