Then we went to visit Gule and Susanne again.
Yellow gets worked off the ground. Here he stretches really well and Susanne is good at spotting when the tempo is too fast or too slow and therefore constantly tries to find the optimal rhythm for Yellow.
This is the first lesson with Cartier and Lene
Cartier is Cody's mother and I must say that I am completely in love with the two horses. They have so much will and personality.
Lene mostly rides Cartier out for a ride, but it has to be made about For Cartier loved it here !! And Lene had super flair for it.
Then Cody and Susanne are back together. They have had a longer involuntary break, but despite that, they had not forgotten anything.
In this lesson, we talked a lot about contact. Often we unconsciously use the reins incorrectly or too much. This typically results in the horses stiffening, leaning, becoming unconcentrated or perhaps starting to make trouble. This is the horse's way of expressing his discomfort.
During this time when many of us are staying at home, here I will tell you a little about the possibility of online teaching as I have chosen not to go out and teach until the Corona situation is controlled.
There are a few who have asked about the possibility of online teaching, where you send me a video with your ride or work by hand and describe your possible problem, which I can guide you through with "talk in" or in writing.

This is the fourth lesson with Zazu and Maria. Once again, we filmed most of the lesson. The video can be seen at the end of the post.
In this lesson, we worked on the stop signal, as well as small tempi changes. These are things Maria needs when she starts riding Zazu.
