Bloody Trot

Yesterday, Floss had an excellent riding lesson from Bjørn, our trainer.

She rode Klængur and they started in walk, practiced halt and asked for an outline.

Klængur was sold to me a few years back in Iceland as a tölt horse.  He never trotted once and that is just how me and my back (or is it my back and I?) liked it.

A solid good action tölting Icelandic horse is a wonderful thing.

Smooth, fun, and makes the rider smile.

Motoring around, having fun, knowing you are safe is definitely the way forward.

So I am now depressed that Klængur has started trotting.  I never asked him and he never did i but he trots for Flossie. Meh.

My horse does not trot.  I can’t trot – it hurts my back horridly with all that bouncing.

There is nothing I can do, however.  Klængur belongs to Flossie now (note-to-self, I must remember to fill in the transfer form and send it off to the Icelandic Horse Society of Great Britain).

I suppose, it doesn’t really matter if Klængur trots, tölts, flies or wobbles his way around as long as Floss has a smile on her face at the end of her riding lesson.

They both worked very well together which is lovely to see.

    Just love that full frontal of Klaengur, all hair and flared nostrils. (Also loved BeAnne and Loki on the beach)

    I was just going to write the exact same thing as Cathy about the full frontal Klaengur photo, with Flossie smiling! Wonderful that she has taken so well to riding. Bravo!
