January Training Update

As I mentioned in my last post Savy has been in training with Nicole since December.  She did two weeks of full training and now we’re doing partial training, with Nicole riding 3 days a week and me riding 3 days, with one of those days being a lesson.  At least that’s the theory.  Neither of us has gotten to ride consistently due to the freaking freezing, totally unfair, artic blasts.

These pictures are from the first week of Savy’s full time training.  I apologize for the large number of headless rider shots 🙂

This video is from me riding on Saturday. Savy hadn’t been worked in almost a week because of the weather and she was definitely feeling like a 4 year old Arabian.  The wind was blowing like crazy and snow was sliding off the roof the whole time.  We were both all over the place but I think the connection is more steady and the canter has definitely improved!
