Training the Girlies

Some days we just go over to the Minion field, take the Icelandic girls out and train them by themselves.  They can see each other but they have to work and learn basic skills like leading nicely.

One each.  Daisy and Lilja.

Flossie and Sóley.

Meanwhile, I take photos of the flowers in the field.

And everyone else watches.  The metaphorical curtains twitch!

Daisy and Floss make good trainers – each understanding their horse very well.  I can definitely see a difference afterwards and am very grateful they are happy to do this.

For a non-rider, Flossie has a lovely relationship with Sóley. They trust each other.

So that’s what we do some days because foundation training matters. It really matters.
