Today Jack and I warmed up online to prepare for our time helping with the cows. We played with follow a feel off of Zone 1 - more so that Jack can change direction and really swing his shoulders out and around back onto the circle. This really improved our Flying lead change online!
We played online today in the Beautiful landscape of Colorado! Our focuses were sideways backwards and circle! We played with backing up some really steep hills and then some cantering traveling circles on and in the hills! We trailer loaded backwards up the ramp from 45' away. It was a great session! I even got to experience more about "Learn Burn"! Oh Boy!!!
With Jack today, we focused on Freestyle, 120 minutes worth. We got a freestyle lesson with Berin and really centered around going with stopping in mind and stopping with backing in mind and backing with a quality move in mind! Then we got to go put our principals to purpose and move 50 Cattle and 7 calves! What fun!
Jack and I also rode follow the rail and played with Linda’s lead change ladder!
