Arena

Rue was adopted today so I spent my last hour with her just enjoying her company. I did liberty work with her in the arena and then spent a significant amount of time bushing her and scratching her favorite spots. I then rode her bareback in a halter for about 40 minutes just walking around relaxed and allowing her to take me where ever she wanted in the arena. This horse is very special to me and I am going to miss working with her. I am so happy for her bright future ahead.

Groundwork

Just did basic lunging, to warm up. Sent her through the area by mirror and black cloth and she was rushing at first but walked comfortably at the end. Worked on going over tarp and she was sidestepping at first but smelled and played with it and got more relaxed with going over both ways. She’s still Leary of it.

Groundwork and Riding

Rue was a bit reactive after saddling so we worked on getting relaxation through doing hindquarter rolls into forward movement. She ended well on this. We went on to riding and worked on bending around a circle and speeding up/ slowing down through seat. Rue is very responsive to riding through seat. We ended with doing some bending into a hindquarter roll then stepping over her front end. She could use some work on this.

Arena

Polished work on HQ and FQ drills. Picking up canter transition from the ground and finding balance while not rushing. Rode Rue bareback using one rein and changing directions by flipping the lead rope over her head. I walked and trotted both directions using my seat to encourage her transition. Yesterday\\\'s ride Rue was ridden under saddle and I had the bridle on. We worked on serpentines and bending correctly to the inside. We ended our ride on a little walk around the property and it was her first ride outside of the arena. Rue was relaxed the entire time. Very proud of her progress.

Arena

Today I warmed Rue up with working her over a tarp on the ground at WTC she was feeling frisky but eventually relaxed. I then saddled her and did that a second time. I have been slowly introducing the french link snaffle into our rides by adding the bridle over the halter and using two reins to communicate. using the halter pressure to reinforce the bit pressure. We worked on bending correctly to the direction we are going. Asking her to bend around my inside leg. Doing direction changes in a figure 8. Ended with asking her to canter in a 20m circle relaxed on a loose rein with a correct bend.

Arena

Today I wanted to work on a join up exercise at liberty in the indoor arena. I have practiced this before in the roundpen but was very curious to see how well Rue would do with more distractions and space. Rue is an extremely smart horse and never really seemed distracted. She was wanting to stay with me the whole time. I did send her out and away multiple times to work on drawing her back in to me. She really enjoys this exercise. We also used the flag to tough her legs and continue to desensitize her to soon be able to pick up her feet. I also spent a significant amount rubbing her and patting her all over her body. Rue was very relaxed and seems to really enjoy human contact.
