Hach, was gibt es schöneres als glückliche Pferde auf der Weide! Da geht einem doch immer das Herz auf 💕 Sind eure mehr so die gemütlichen Typen, die gemächlich auf die Weide schlendern und eigentlich nur fressen wollen oder geht da richtig die Post ab und vor lauter Lebensfreude wird erstmal die halbe Koppel umgepflügt? Sam und Zausel sind nur am ersten Tag so euphorisch gewesen, jetzt haben sie nur noch fressen im Kopf 😅
🌸Worauf achtet ihr beim Pferdekauf??? 🌸
Gestern habe ich Lacros das erste Mal mit Kappzaum longiert, das hat er ziemlich gut gemacht. Er hat den Weg nach unten gesucht und fein abgeschnaubt. In der Story seht ihr ein bisschen was davon. 😊 Aber @beatrice_mary_ kann stolz auf den kleinen sein, er war sehr lieb und hat den Kappzaum gut angenommen.
Heute kommt der Tierarzt zu Jana und Lacros. #Kappzaum#longenarbeit#pferdekauf
This is the mug I painted at the Clay Cafe recently :) Hopefully it turns out well after it's fired! It takes 3 weeks until I'll know 😄 If you would like to order a blue horse mug for yourself, please feel free to email me :)
Do you ever finish riding and feel like your arms are going to drop off?
Does your horse pull you forward?
Both horse and rider should be in an independent balance. Neither relying on the other for support. Leaning from the horse is usually a lack of self carriage and balance.
There are a number of reasons why a horse might be leaning on you and not in a good self carriage. * Lack of impulsion
* Lack of engagement
* Poor balance
* Running/too fast
* Rider is leaning and balancing on the horse * Rider is out of alignment with poor balance
* Horse is built 'on the forehand'
* Stiffness, poor suppleness
* Horse is tired
HOW DO I SOLVE THIS?
This depends on the reason why and this must first be identified. If you are not sure the reason then it is useful to get a qualified instructor to assess you and your horse.
Always look at the rider first. 9 times oit if 10 if we solve rider issues then the horses issues will also be resolved.
The horse can only lean if given something to lean against. Making sure the rider is in a good balance, with correct alignment and an independent seat will make is so much easier for the horse to carry themselves.
CORE MUSCLES!!!! Often the most under utlised rider aid!
By having a strong core (tummy muscles) it gives your position strength and stability. Engaging the core muscles when riding takes away the need to over use the rein and gives more control and effect through the seat therefore resulting in a lighter contact, and lighter horse.
A strong core is absolutely essential foe a balanced, effective and secure position.
Do you use your core enough to control and influence the horse?

Throwback!!! This picture was taken 5 years ago which is crazy as it feels like I bought this little man yesterday. Anyone who knew him would say he had the cheekiest character and even when you were in a rubbish mood, he'd find a way to make you smile! He was sold a few years ago to a lovely lady who wanted to compete in dressage (showjumping wasn't really Johnny's thing, he was more of a dressage diva!) ❤ last time I spoke to his new owner, she said they'd been getting on very well in the world of dressage 🌍
And exams are over!! So excited to spend looaaaddss of time with all the ponies :D I have my first jumping lesson tonight since the 15th of February and gahhhh I'm sooo looking forward to getting back on board and actually being productive with my horse 🐴
