Here comes the sun
I can't say the time off hasn't done the pony good. While she isn't as fit, she is maintaining and improving through the schedule that I've got her on.
-Ride as many time as the weather will allow
Achieved, there were times where we managed two to three works in a row, but everything was infrequent. I've begun to make arrangements to do Florida next year.
-Refine half halts
With infrequent work this became harder.
played with shallow half passes, namely half pass, immediately straight, half pass again. Did a little bit of pir work when she offered.
Better, sharper, but not sustainable at the moment.
-Develop show schedule
-Ride as many times as the weather will allow
-Regain fitness (horse and rider)
-Prepare materials for L program
-run through second and third level
-big, bold changes
