FROM GREEN TO GREAT – BOBBY – 1August 4, 2020
This is George and Kirstin’s last session before lockdown, during which they return to working with a single pole on the ground, then ridden, and the challenge of placing a single front leg, then hind leg over a single pole.
George isn’t keen to put all his weight on his right hind, so putting the left hind leg over a single pole is a bit of a challenge initially.
This is a fascinating lesson for Kirstin in the feel of where the horse’s weight is and how to influence the step by encouraging distribution of weight from one leg to another, and a great exercise for horses who are coming back to fitness after time off.
