Horse using Rhythmic Pressure
Sunday, 09 November 2008

I know that video quality is very poor but you will get an idea of what happened when I was trying to teach Baby how to yield to rhythmic pressure.

She knows the question but thought, here why don't you try it!!)



Harley's first Backing
Sunday, 09 November 2008

Finally, managed to upload this video from 4th August 2008 when we started Harley. Not the most elegant of styles by any means. I bred Harley and he was born 6th August 2006. I am happy I was the first one to sit on him. He will be left for another year, maybe two, before he backed properly for riding.

It was tipping it down with rain but I couldn't resist trying out our new toy.

Here are a couple of pictures of us all trying it out. This is Harley having a go with Magpie & Polly checking it out. elephant_stand_all.jpg
