Wizard Ride 198:Crow

Wizard

Friday, 11/19/10

I am happily eating crow. I tried a new bit I would have never thought he’d like and Wizard loves it. I borrowed a dee-ring rubber snaffle. He accepted contact more readily and fussed less with the bit. I practiced combing the reins (see our last post) and the two of us seem to have taken a big step closer to contact.

The weather was sunny and cool and we were able to ride outside. My favorite arena to ride in is the big outdoor arena, and a quiet sunny morning is even better. We worked on transitions and riding into the corners, in preparation for a schooling show this weekend :^) Wizard’s canter work was a million times better than it was during our lesson- I’d guess that it was partially due to riding outdoors, partially due to me relaxing more, and partially due to getting a few more rides under our belt this week.
