Chronicles of the Brown Horse: Week 7: The bitless bridle.



After a week off due to my cold, I lunged today with side reins. Nala kept stopping at the canter. I let the reins out a hole and she moved much better.


After she was calm I decided to ride the fields a bit in the bitless bridle.


We mostly walked with a bit of trot, both flat and up hills and grazed.


Our first time bitless! She is learning to steer side to side in the bitless.IMG_20150415_173115280 IMG_20150415_172648005

We also herded the dog and goat!


She is getting a good shine on her new coat!

Today we did ground work with two poles, a blue plastic tarp and a green canvas tarp.


Then we hand walked the hills and ended the day due to high winds.

The wind has really picked up in the afternoon and 20 MPH can be a bit spooky to my horse and unpleasant for me. So, we have done some more ground work. Leading over poles, over a canvas tarp, and walking by a flapping blue tarp. We also did some drag work with a flowered lei and a stuffed teddy bear. We plan to ride 4/19 with another horse.

Nala is very alert, some of these shots are her watching  when someone went walking by with dogs almost 3 blocks away on the dune!

I also started tying her hay bin to the wall since she was dragging in around her stall and tossing hay everywhere.
