Sounds really interesting
Did you change saddles after my clinic? And did you shorten your stirrups again? (I remember asking you to lengthen them as well
What I did see was a horse who could not go forward because his saddle was to long and pressing down on his withers and a rider, who tried to push her horse so much forward all the time, that his movement was blocked by the ribs (imagine trying to walk forward while someone is holding your ribs with his hands really tight).
Remember how he started walking when you stopped using your legs all the time?
Now I imagine the squeeling and the bucking came from you sqeezing the life out of Romeo
I could be mistaken of course
But after both of you just fell in the forward movement finally (Thanx to Manolo), you let go and Romeo could just go
Very interesting. I would never have done it as such, fearing the loss of balance (I always work on balance first and movement later, afraid that the horse might learn to go forward in the forehand only), but seeing as this fixt you two I'll keep it in mind for sure
And speeking of the garrocha, did you see that Cloris gave a garrocha clinic at Equihof and Owen and I participated bridle-less?
Cloris will come back next year, so maybe something for you and Romeo then
Strangely enough, Romeo seemed every so polite, gentle and sensitive to me, here at Equihof, as well as at the clinic in Krefeld. Has it changed since then, or did I just get the wrong impression?
Glad that you are back here!
