Feeding the predators 😉

We started the day off as usual. While I stayed inside catching up on blogs and posting to instagram Marina went out to the pasture to get Isabella and Mercedes. After I was finished with the blogs I headed outside and we started riding. At first we did some work together with Isabella following Mercedes but then we strated to do our own thing. I did a few turns and a little bit of gait. It was a good and busy morning. We had lunch and got straight back to work.

 

 

We brought in Electra and Boo from the pasture. We brushed them and I started with Boo. We were in the back garden at first but then we went into the front. I didnt do and Paso Largo today as it could of ended with a gallop which wouldn’t have of been very pretty 😛 After making sure that everything was quite and gentle we brought out the little black devil…I mean umm.. we brought out Electra 😀 We started out in the round pen but then we went out around the garden. It was fun and we did a few stops and turns and everything went well today 🙂 After all that we got a bozal and a rein and we put it on Mercedes. We went into the round pen with her. Marina told me to lie down on her back at first and once Mercedes was comfortable with that I got up! This was my first time riding bareback in about a month. It was amazing to feel the horse moving underneath me with no saddle separating me from the horse. We did a bit of walking in the round pen then I started to gait. It was so smooth and Mercedes was being so careful and so responsive it was an amazing experience. Everything was so smooth underneath me I might as well have been sitting in a chair! There was no bouncing around like on any other  horse and it was all so relaxed and gentle. In the case of a Paso Fino bareback riding is so much better and so much more comfortable than with a saddle or any other way of riding.

A great beginning to a long lasting friendship :)
