Lex was able to come out last Saturday to ride the mare for me. They worked on bending, contact, and some collection. Riva is a quick learner and now only throws bucks when she gets overwhelmed and confused. I love that in the many, many pics that dad/husband took - Lex is smiling all the time!
A few pics from Saturday's training ride:
Yikes - she is so dirty! I most definitely want to body clip her next winter. She is smelly and super hairy. Our Mid-West winter has been very mild but the weather changes day to day. I don't feel comfortable giving her a full bath yet, but boy does she need it!
