Ground work and rode

There was lots of commotion from event clean up at the barn. I rode Pokey in the round pen next to the noise to see if she would spook. She was calm and attentive. I bounced the ball next to her while on her back, and she was fine

Ground work and rode

She was much better and more quiet with the bit today. She gave to it some with the reins from the ground. Worked on stopping and backing with seat

Horse Image

03/19/2018 04:36

Ground work and rode

Rode today using rope halter but let her carry bit. Did very well, worked on smooth turns and backing lightly

Horse Image

Ground work and rode

Day 2 with the bit. She did a little better with it. I put the reins on and worked on lateral flex ion on both sides from the ground. Rode in round pen, and in arena. She wanted to go back to the gate, so I worked her near the gate, then walked her to the far end of the arena, had her stand quietly, and then got off and led her back

Ground work and rode

Pokey had a very good day. Introduced her to a snaffle. She did well carrying it. Rode in rope halter and she w/t/c both directions quietly, and stopped lightly

Horse Image

02/26/2018 07:49

Groundwork

Pokey had a good session. She was calm and attentive at liberty

Horse Image

02/16/2018 05:21

Ground work and rode

Pokey has gone into heat and has lost a lot of focus, so I worked on filling in holes with her groundwork. Even though we’ve done a lot of work with ropes around her legs, she still panicked at one point when the end of the lead rope wrapped around her, so we worked on that a lot until she would give to pressure on all 4 legs. Under saddle, she started off resistant, and turned around and bit my foot while trotting. We worked it out and trotted a lot while doing figure 8s

Horse Image

02/12/2018 06:19

Groundwork

She was very fidgety and distracted. Worked on keeping her attention. Had trouble stopping at liberty. She would just change directions. Worked on this until she would stop, turn and face me and walk in

Horse Image

02/05/2018 06:01

Ground work and rode

Was very rushed on the ground, so worked on slowing down, standing still, and relaxing. Under saddle, worked on making clean turns without her fussing and tossing her head, still in rope halter. Also worked on disengaging hindquarters with light leg pressure

Horse Image

02/03/2018 05:39

Ground work and rode

Was a little pushy under saddle, so worked lots of figure 8s and turning to get her softer. Also worked on disengaging hindquarters under saddle. She picked it up very quickly

Horse Image

02/02/2018 06:37

Groundwork and rode

Started off a little jumpy, so we did some ground work to start with. Once she was more focused, I rode. Resistant on cantering to the left, but did get it. Pushed ball with me on her back

Horse Image

01/29/2018 05:32

Ground work and rode

Started with ground work and she was a little jumpy today. Worked on disengaging hindquarters from ground, as well as in saddle. Did very well

Horse Image

First ride out of arena

Potential adopters cane to look at Pokey, so I did a demo for them. After they left, I took Pokey in the arena and rode her in the open for the first time. She did very well. She rode quietly next to the road, and even went over an obstacle

Horse Image

01/19/2018 07:04

Cantered

Warmed up with groundwork and then rode. Trotted her one lap around round pen in each direction. Cantered a few strides each direction

Horse Image

01/15/2018 06:50

Rode

Trotted a full circle in the round pen under saddle. Is getting much softer backing and turning

Horse Image

01/12/2018 03:02

Trotted for first time

Did warm up groundwork, then rode. Worked on flexing and backing in rope halter, and even trotted for the first time. She did very well

Horse Image

01/10/2018 03:25

Groundwork

First day back in several weeks. She was uncomfortable with me on her right side, so focused a lot on getting her to relax while I stood and petted her. When lunging, she has trouble staying at a walk. When she is walking, she will keep her nose turned into me, bending her neck dramatically and becoming very crooked. I worked this on both sides until she would relax and straighten out for a few strides, then let her come in

Horse Image

12/22/2017 05:14

Rode

Rode her completely alone for the first time. She is becoming much more responsive. She did not want to walk to one side of the round pen, but we worked on it until she would, and I ended it there on a good note.

Horse Image

12/21/2017 05:54

Rode

Trotted for the first time while Dani lunged, with me on her back. Rode alone again in the round pen. She did very well, and had no problems. Starting to figure out turning and stopping in the rope halter

Horse Image

12/19/2017 05:44

Rode

Rode without being led for the first time. Did very well. Walked, turned right, left, and backed with no problems

Horse Image

12/18/2017 05:05

Rode

Pokey had her second ride today. Dani walked her on a lead rope while I sat on her, and then sent her out on a a circle. She stayed very relaxed, and we had no problems

Horse Image

12/14/2017 06:48

Groundwork

Saddled and worked in the arena on going over barrels. Took some time, but she did go over them both directions

Horse Image

12/07/2017 07:05

Groundwork

Worked on squeezing between me and fence. Took a while, but she finally walked calmly after about 30 minutes

Horse Image

12/05/2017 07:19

Groundwork

Had a hard time catching her from the pasture with the other mares. Took about 30 mins. Did similar to round pen work in the pasture until she stopped, faced, and came to me to be caught. Then worked all 7 games in the round pen, saddled. Did very well. Still some trouble with squeeze game, but got it faster than last time.

Horse Image

11/30/2017 07:41

Ground work

Went through all 7 games. Worked on sidepassing on the ground for the first time, and she did very well. Worked on squeezing between me and fence. She was nervous at first, but settled down at the end and did well. Did very well walking and stopping going to left while circling, but still had trouble with the right. Worked on it until she would walk and stop when asked.

Horse Image

11/28/2017 02:04

Groundwork

Worked on slowing down and stopping during circling game. She does not walk calmly, and is very tense when she does. Looking at her hindquarters to disengage her hip to have her turn and come in to me causes her to panic, even though she’s already been taught to do this. Started over with small steps until she would walk calmly, stop when asked and come in to me.

Horse Image

11/24/2017 04:10

Groundwork

Saddled and worked on circling game to the right. She would stop after about a half circle and try to change directions. Would not stop when asked. When I finally got her to stop, she would only approach me with her left side facing me, and would start running again if I stepped on her right side. We worked through it until she would approach and let me stand on her right side, with her relaxed.

Horse Image

11/21/2017 04:08

Groundwork

Worked on standing on her right side again. Still very resistant.

Horse Image

11/18/2017 05:19

Saddled and rode for first time

Kara had a lesson with her. We worked on personal space, and keeping her attention. After the lesson, a mounted and rode her while Dani led us around the round pen. She did very well.

Horse Image

11/17/2017 12:00

Saddled/groundwork

She does well being saddled. She is very uncomfortable with someone standing on her right side, and will try to turn away quickly or use her nose to block and push me away. I worked through this by standing on her right side until she relaxed, then stepping away.

Horse Image

11/15/2017 03:30

Accepting handler on right side

Put bareback pad on and worked in round pen on giving to pressure. She did well. At liberty, she was unwilling to let me on her right side at all. I haltered her and worked on it for a while. She kept trying to turn her nose in to block me from standing on her right side, so I would move her forequarters around to the left every time she did this. By the end of the session, she was quietly leading around the round pen with me on her right side.
