How amazing are
Prudence and Cruise!
�♀️ These 2 decided to do our 5 day private intensive coaching program.
Where they come day after day to work and build a better relationship. � � Tighten up the nuts and bolts and iron out some issues they may be having.
When they arrived on Tuesday, Cruise wasn’t very interested in his flat work. � Riding with a hand break on and not engaged in his work. He would threaten to kick out , duck out of his canter circle work and always take the right canter lead. Pru’s seat needed a little adjusting especially in her canter and her stop. We also worked on improving her feel and learning how to ride with her body and less with her hands /reins.
While at times feeling defeated �(we’ve all been there) this team never ever gave up. � Pru had amazing courage riding some difficult situations, she never got frustrated with Cruise only with herself. That’s the Mark of a true trainer in the making. ��� (Maybe a little Amy even � for all you heartland lovers out there). Early in the week her mum mentioned she always wanted to have an “Amy off heartland moment” � e.g riding with her hand out while cantering. If you ask me she had a lot of these moments. She has achieved a connection with her horse that will make everything easier in the future. I can not speak highly enough of the improvement they made during the week. � Teaching her horse how to back up from the wiggle of her lead rope, acing the figure 8 trot circle challenge I gave her. The sky is the limit with these two and I can’t wait to see where it takes them. �
Here are some of the special moments from the week.�
