Beautiful! So very soft and giving (both of you!). :cheers:

And I watched your trotting under saddle over and over... I couldn't get over how relaxed and swinging Owen's back and pelvis were!

Thank you! :D

I am confident that Owen can show a piaffe without bridle or spurs this summer... carrying his co-alpha, ha ha! : me :) ( really dig that idea... wow)
Hopefully when Ania comes filmig, would that not be nice?
I say to Owen, after we've done this and all is documenten well, we can retire ha ha ! He then nickers, honestly. :lol: Like he is laughing softly.

Most horses start trot really fine when without rider.
The problem is the riders seat.

You have to learn (and it is actually quite easy) to keep (as I call it) your seat 'light' and 'open at the front'.
A voila: magic gaits :)

Thinking of Bruce Lee who states 'the art of fighting without fighting' I also call it: 'the Art of sitting without sitting' :)
Or as Master Lee also states: 'Be like water, my friend'....


:)
My pupils thank me ... a lot ha ha !!!
And I always say: why did no one ever explain to me? :roll:

You and Owen set a shining example for the rest of us to humbly strive for. :bowdown:

None of this :oops: stuff, now! I hope you realise that when you're here (did you get the e-mail I sent, BTW?) you're going to have to teach me seat lessons, and bitless lessons, and cordeo lessons, and help me how to work more effective with Freckles, and help him how to work more effective with his body, and, and, AND!

I don't think there'll be time for you to work with anyone else! :lol:

Can you explain it here? Please? :) Or maybe you have, and I missed it... in that case, where have you explained it, so that I can learn?

In will, I am working on a chapter for the riding section.
But still, it is best to have an eye on the ground of course :)

Oh, yes, someone on the ground to help is such a blessing, isn't it?

I am eagerly awaiting your riding-seat post!! :cheers:

Josepha, Owen looks well and happy after all your concern. I do hope he maintains his health. He is such a Good Boy, no mugging and he halts nicely.
I definately need you to pop in next year, Eileen must still be moving as I have heard nothing yet for dates etc.
Lovely video of happy human and happy horse.

Thanks Susie :)
He thought it out so, it was all his idea, he was in charge as you all can see :)
Interesting is my body language, when I bend my core away from him he takes longer to stop, then when I aim my core at him. I only just saw that on film, good idea, filming :green:

Well, there is still time, don't worry, the UK clinic will happen for sure :)
