Yesterday after we got home from OH with the family I loved on the horses and rode Daisy bridleless around the meadow a bit..that was a lot of fun!
Today I rode Daisy in the snaffle bit. I was getting her to move her hindquarters and forquarters both left and right. She did amazingly well. I also got her to back up, using very light hands on the reins. She has done so well with backing up. Alyson was at the barn so I got her to watch me ride Daisy at a trot and so she laid out two poles so I could trot over them. I plan to work Daisy with that more. After I was done with riding Daisy, I unsaddled her and then gave her a bath. After her bath I tied her out.
I got Freedom and drove him. He did so great. I was pleased with how well he drove. We drove the whole way out to the end of the driveway. Once we were done driving I gave him a bath too. I had quite the enjoyable evening with the horses!! Plan to ride again tomorrow evening!
