Dawn

I took Dawn out for a trail ride this morning! The ground was frozen, so we walked the whole time, but we still had a productive ride! We did some hills and crossed some water. Dawn was quite nervous about crossing the water. I did not have a stick to help me out, so I ended up getting off and sending her through on the ground (it was a very small stream). I sent her through multiple times, got on, and rode through it a few more times as well. By the end, she was walking through without hesitation. Overall, Dawn was very confident throughout the ride. She led through a lot of it. She seemed to really enjoy herself

Dawn

I have ridden Dawn a couple more times in between the snow and freeze since my last log. Audrey has also ridden Dawn a few times and she is using her for drill team (she will hopefully be going to the PA horse world expo in March). Audreydoes a great job with her and Dawn has been great to use for drill-she does not mind riding around with other horses or the craziness that comes with drill team! I rode Dawn w/t/c today in the ring (hooray for not frozen ground!). The main thing we worked on was upward transitions. She has a habit of throwing her head up during the transition, so we worked on moving up and out into the transition and keeping the contact throughout. By the end, I was getting some good ones! She definitely feels better going to the left than the right. Overall, I was very impressed with how she was carrying herself. She does get curled behind at times, but not bad for being out of shape. I also cantered her for the first time since she came back. The transitions were not that pretty, but once she got into it, she did great. She could not hold it for long, but I do not blame her. She will be back into shape in no time!

Dawn

Dawn was returned last week-no fault of her own. We were told that the adopter had not been able to work her for at least the past 6 months. She had been perfect for everything with the exception of needles and testing the electric fence/getting out. I cannot seem to find my training logs from her before she got adopted (she was adopted out in late 2017 and came to DEFHR summer of 2017). She was 3 at the time, so she will be coming 5 this year. When I evaluated her, she was already broke, obviously in the western reining discipline (I remember she already had a sliding stop tendency at 2 years old-that was her go-to). I remember her being very easy-going and willing. Courtney had ridden her in a pas de deux at a fundraiser polo and she did great with the crowds. I had also taken her out on trail rides before she was adopted out. Originally, I was going to wait to reevaluate her because the ring is snow covered (I have been riding the horses I have that are going solid, but not doing a lot of circles or cantering to prevent slipping). But I decided thatshe was so easy before that I would at least tack her up and lunge her in the ring. She was perfect for tacking and lunging, so I went ahead and got on and rode w/t. She was a little ‘excited’ when I pushed her up to the trot, but I didn’t blame her! It was the first time someone had been on her in months! Because of the snow, I couldn’t really work her through the excitement, but I did work on some walk/trot transitions in the nicer areas. She felt very good!
