Jez’s second time over at the ring went well. She seemed happy to be working and eagerly walked over all the jumps that were left set up in the ring. She also listened on the lunge and all though she was interested in looking around she was paying attention and not too distracted. Circe also […]

Ground work, ground work , ground work, that’s my new theme. Since I have no saddle at the moment I’m focusing on lunging my filly. I’ve taken to lunging her for 20 minutes a day trying to get her into a routine. I bring her in from the field, groom her, put on her splint […]
