This session is taken from Module 1 of the Riding for Lightness course case studies. In this session, Peter assesses Rosie and finds she is a lazy/strong type of horse. Rosie is very dull and switched off to the aids. She is insensitive to the go aid, strong to the stop aid and can be quite bargey. Hannah says that Rosie was a real nightmare when she first got her, towing her around the yard going wherever she wanted to go.
Please note that we recommend wearing a hat, gloves and boots when doing groundwork with your horse.
