Momentous day. I had a fantastic lesson with Julie Robins here at the farm and learned so much, again. I was telling her how I felt frustrated about the training and she said it is a learning curve. It is never "perfect." Horses, just like people, have good days and not so good ones. I will write more on this, but the great news is that I rode Jester again today.
I am learning more about his personality and realizing - he isn't exactly an "I will do what ever you want horse!" I am finding out that when he has a "choice" (which he has never had before) to work with me (while in saddle and on the ground) he challenges me. Tests me. Just like GATOR! OH! OH!~ OH!
Jester does have a voice - he is thanking me for taking away his curb bit! Now, he gets to have an opinion. Is this a good thing? It will be!
Workshop at Julie Robins tonight. 9 year old Lusitano (spelling?) beautiful light grey in color mare. Learned so much tonight I need to gather my thoughts and write more later.
GREAT HORSE DAY!!!!!
