Garrabeg Cherokee doing the start of his ground work in the field today. He was so good and well behaved and coped with it all in his stride. It is important to work quietly and consistently and to remain calm if the foal overreacts they are depending on us to show them what we want. Work on flexing, backing and moving the hindquarters and showing your baby things they may come across as they get older. It is to our benefit. Do Not overdrill or work too long and tire them out 10 to 20 mins two or three times a week is enough at this stage.
A fun filled ( if not rainy) weekend exploring the trails around east Lothian. The video is snippits from our Sunday morning ride, everyone had a great time. The bumpy bits are taken from horseback so apologies if a bit wobbly!
