Building trust and working on transitions

Feeling a little under the weather this week, but wanted to get a video out before heading to the Rocking Horse Stables Winter II Horse Trials, which is a great event, but in a location where cell service is a major challenge.

This week, I continued to make great progress doing bareback and bridleless work with Sharpie.  It’s very important to begin every session with some stretching.  Not only is it a good warm up before engaging in physical activity, but its a good for building mutual trust and forming a strong bond with your horse.

This was only Sharpie’s 4th bridleless ride, so I want it to be really relaxing as we continue to build our relationship, at the same time as we focus on learning basic cues and transitions.
