Summary

Likes- Belly scratches- right in the middle of her belly. Use your fingernails! Neck rubs- especially either side of just below where her bridle path ends. The harder the better. Eating grass after a good ride. Medium diameter snaffle with heavy reins that will lay quietly on her shoulder and not flip in the wind. Leg pressure to help with turns. Bumping reins if her she tenses her jaw and won\\\'t flex. Calf bumps to help her back if she gets \\\"stuck\\\". Waiting and watching something that makes her anxious. You can push/force her through, but it then takes that much longer for her to settle down and you\\\'ve chipped away at some of the trust you\\\'ve worked so hard to build. Ask her to move a little closer and then let her process. Move-process, move-process. She\\\'s never refused anything from the saddle, but i\\\'ve also never asked her to go THAT FAR beyond what I think she\\\'s comfortable doing. She\\\'s had enough trauma- I don\\\'t need to cause more by asking for more than she\\\'s ready for. Rollbacks at the trot- sister can move!!! Dislikes- Moving through obstacles, gates, spaces that may move or touch her or that make clanging/metal noises. She will still rush through if you\\\'ve pushed her too far. Stop and look is her best offense. Give her a little minute to think about it. She has a lot of try in her, let her use it. Kiss sound to get to the lope, just squeeze her with your legs- otherwise she\\\'ll rush through that transition and it takes her a few strides to settle back in. Ropes tossed towards her. Clippers on her chin and bridle path. Other horses near her when she eats. She\\\'d rather be out in a pasture to eat, not penned up. Enjoy her. She\\\'s had a tricky life as best as Dani can figure and she\\\'s worked hard to come this far.

Arena work

Bareback in the arena with just a halter. A little nervous about the flapping end of the dangly leadrope, but not problems.

Horse Image

10/22/2020 12:38

Arena work

w/t/c in arena. The circle at a lope is coming along. We\\\'ve completed 3 completes with no breakdowns to a trot. Is stopping better with my seat.

Horse show

Bartow open horse show. She completed in a number of halter classes and 2 walk trot classes. She was great. A little nervy past the announcers stand with the banging and clanging and voices from nowhere, but she didn\\\'t spook or jump, just scootched away. She experienced kids jumping on the metal bleachers, a train, sirens, semi trucks, a helicopter, getting boxed in a few time, toddlers darting in front of her and handled it all like a timid, but under control horse who knows how to stop and watch things. This has been the best tool in the tool kit. Let her stop and watch things that make her anxious and she has been fine.

Arena work

w/t/c used a cowboy running martingale (hay string across her chest tied to the breast collar rings on the saddle and ran the reins under it) to help her with her head set. She gets a little high at the trot and forgets to be soft- she has a nice enough halt that tonight- i just rode with one set of reins, but took off the martingale to canter in an abundance of caution since her circles at the lope aren\\\'t great and if you aren\\\'t careful, she\\\'ll try to take you out of the arena. Overall, a productive night.

Horse Image

10/06/2020 12:47

Arena work

w/t/c in pasture. Still barn/gate sour, but doesn\\\'t try as hard to get \\\"home\\\" except at the canter, she will stiffen her jaw and just take you. A firm one rein and opposite leg have worker to keep us out of trouble, but it is an issue.

Horse Image

10/05/2020 12:50

Quick ride

Quick bareback ride in the round pen. She was fine. A little hesitant to move out when she\\\'d feel me moved, but it really helped her understand hind quarter yields and bumping with my calves to get her to back better.

Horse Image

09/29/2020 12:51

Arena work

wtc with obstacles in the arena. Obstacles that squeeze/box her in are not a favorite. IF they don\\\'t touch her, she\\\'ll deal, but it takes some convincing and systematic work to get her to move through them quietly. We don\\\'t school on them often because it still makes her anxious and isn\\\'t a favorite of hers and truthfully, I think she gets a vote in what we do. Tonight, though, her vote got overruled and we did obstacles. Lots of sweat and tightened jaw with tons of bending and standing between obstacles to breathe it out. Good trying Rosie Posie.

Arena work

wtc. Good workout. Mostly exercise tonight- the long trot is not her easiest gait- it\\\'s choppy, but she can maintain on straight lines.. Some work on halting from the seat.

Horse Image

09/08/2020 01:04

Arena work

We\\\'re moving towards less and less lunging. She\\\'s not a bucker and lunging makes her anxious if you need to get after her (which you do to get a canter) so I feel like a few minutes is enough to get the ants out of her pants and we can move on to the fun parts!

Horse Image

09/07/2020 01:11

Arena work

wtc pasture then arena. Feet are getting a little less tender in the arena, but she definitely prefers the grass. We typically start in one area and then finish in the other. She enjoys going new places and is curious about what\\\'s out there, so we never mind going somewhere new. She has only shied when \\\"trail riding\\\" around the property when we\\\'ve passed to close under a tree and my helmet noisily brushed a tree branch. She quickly moved away, but it never felt out of control.

Horse Image

09/03/2020 01:08

Arena work

Some attempts at loping circles in the pasture. They look more like beans or ovals, but we\\\'re trying. w/t work is really nice, though her head remains elevated the first few minutes of trotting until she settles in some. An o ring snaffle with heavy reins is the bit of choice right now. The reins touching her legs/shoulders has seemed to not bother her much, though if they bounce a lot I\\\'m sure she would move away from them.

Horse Image

08/22/2020 11:29

Arena work

We rode in the back track and the grass pasture. She has been a little barn sour wanting to turn back towards the barn and having a hard time staying straight, so we worked on bend/flex and a LOT of transition work. She is very anticipatory of the canter and almost bolts when you kiss her to a lope. I will lower or quit kissing and just move to leg pressure to ask her forward into the next gait. Moving away from the barn she will halt with voice/seat, but going towards the barn you must use your reins. Her ground manners have been terrific lately! There has been a little backsliding in the catching department since she has moved into the barn and isn\\\'t on grass 24/7.

Arena work

We had a nice ride today. Still battling the barn sourness, by weaving instead of traveling straight and in the track bracing her jaw against the bit when she doesn\\\'t want to turn. She has made tons of progress with bending and flexing at the halt and walk and we are beginning to do more mounted hind quarter and forequarter yields. Next week I\\\'ll ask someone on ground to help her understand what I\\\'m asking with a forequarter yield because that is a struggle for her.

Horse Image

08/15/2020 02:59

Arena work

Today we cantered both directions in the back track. She continues to fall into the canter from a very quick trot. No leg pressure is needed just a kiss and a bringing forward of your shoulders. She will slow down into a quieter lope after a few very quick gallop strides. We will transition to cantering in the pasture or the arena next week after we have worked on transitions of speed within a gait. We also worked on a few obstacles in the arena and she was able to pass through the noodles and go between two close barrels.

Horse Image

08/12/2020 03:01

Arena work

We cantered for the first time today in the round pen. She was hesitant to transition from the track to the Cantor and once she was in a Cantor it was very fast and felt uncontrolled until about two laps in, when she finally started to relax a little bit. Each time she picked up the canner she was in the correct lead and it got a little calmer and smoother more quickly each time.She would not lope in the pasture or the arena. She stayed in a very fast trot and was bracing with her jaw and I wasn’t sure that she would perform at one rein stop. Her bending and flexing is getting much better and she’s beginning to halt just from my seat and voice commands.

Horse Image

08/10/2020 03:05

Arena work

We attempted a Cantor in the arena today, but she was unwilling to move from a very fast trot. And then seemed very anxious afterwards, so we worked on a lot of work to trot transitions and then try to walk transitions with a lot of standing still and flexing in between. We also began working on extending her gate and length of stride at the walk in the trot. She seems a little confused But we will continue to work on lengthening and shortening her stride in preparation for more difficult activities. She continues to brace against the bed when she gets anxious and at higher rates of speed.

Horse Image

08/07/2020 07:06

Arena work

Increased ground work today since Wednesday was little touchy. Went back to heavier reins with D ring. She didn\\\'t flinch against the reins at all, but did lose a little bend. She continues to brace her jaw against any bend at the trot. Bending at the halt has gotten MUCH better, not much progress at the walk, but she is turning better. I\\\'d like to switch back to the o ring with the dog bone, but using heavier reins and see if that makes a difference. She was much calmer today, but there also wasn\\\'t much going on besides a few horses riding today. Will try cantering in the pasture/sand next week.

Horse Image

08/05/2020 07:04

Arena work

Minimal longing today to see how she handles straight to work. A lot of activity at the barn, with horses leaving, the yard guy mowing/weeding and a silly horse in the round pen banging around. She was also sensitive to the light reins, noisy saddle fenders, my arm movements. She also just transitioned from full time pasture to full time barn. w/t was safe, but her head stayed elevated.

Horse Image

08/03/2020 06:58

Arena work

WTC both ways on longe line in arena. Feet cont to be tender, so not much loping. She does resist the lope both ways, even in a pasture on softer ground. She braces against the bit, so I switched to a dog bone snaffle with a o ring, but the lightness of the reins make her extra \\\"twitchy\\\", but her responsiveness to the bit is better than the D ring with heavy reins. W/T under saddle, the circles are coming slowly, but surely.

07/29/2020 07:23

Completed challenge

Completed the 60 Day Riding and Ground Challenge. She stayed calm and quiet for both activities. She walked, trotted, backed, sidepassed, demonstrated front and hind quarter yield and loaded quietly onto/waited to back out of the trailer with bubbles blowing. She did not go through the pool or over the bridge with the culvert on one side and noodles on the other. I feel like I probably could have pushed her to go through both, but it would have wrecked the rest of the ride and it just wasn\\\'t worth the anxiety it would have caused. We\\\'ve spent so much time working on being calm that I didn\\\'t want to ask her to do something she wasn\\\'t ready for. Good work Rosie Posie!

Leg Ropes/Prepping for farrier

2 line driving at walk/trot with reins attached to bridle. Did well, no overactions and I intentionally did a lot of flopping with the stirrups, which can send her into a little tailspin. She was able to weave the barrels, go between 2 pools and scoot right next to the fence and back in a straight line. We rode and she was able to hingquarter yield, forequarter takes a little more effort, but she manages eventually. She does get a little anxious about my hand being so far out to help her move her shoulder over.

Arena work

Leg ropes... yeeek. She hated the rope being tossed onto her, so we spent some extra time there. She did good on her arena work, but had her first major fit when the stirrups were flopping against her side while 2 line driving at the trot. I was able to 1 rein stop/hind quarter yield to disengage and then went back to work. She\\\'s made a ton of progress, but moments like that remind me she still is a work in progress.

2 line driving

She met me halfway to be caught which was the second time since starting to work with her 3 months ago! Grooming and saddling had no issues. I attached a flow-y pink surcingle to her saddle, a long horse tail that stuck out the side and a small rope tied to her saddle to help her overcome some issues of ropes or other items being next to her and moving. She walked and trotted calmly on the longe line, but did get a little panic-y at the canter. We also did some 2 line driving, which she handled beautifully. We didn\\\'t drive over major obstacles as she had a lot of \\\"new stuff\\\" going on with her saddle and I\\\'d like to help her build confidence, so that\\\'s something we\\\'ll continue to work toward. I will start attaching long lines to the bit in preparation for more advanced riding work.
