Back in the saddle for us all.
While everyone else went out on their horses, I warmed up Haakon in the indoor school ready for a quick impromptu lesson. Our tölt is very flat and I needed help.
I was told that it all starts with the outline so we worked on that first.
Then Bjørn rode him to get the feel of Haakon. He hasn’t ridden him for a while and of course instantly Haakon went beautifully. I was very envious.
Meanwhile, BeAnne was helping Taktur. We caught her “helping” a lot. Norty little girl.
Then I got back on Haakon and off we went again – our tölt hugely improved. I have much to work on, I can see, and we will practice, practice, practice.
During the cool-down, I let BeAnne up for a ride too. She had been asking nicely and we did a few laps together.
A reward snack for Haakon while BeAnne had a rest.
Like most little girls, I think she dreams of riding ponies!
(now starts to wonder whether a Minion could be bribed when a bit older!)
