peek has very limited under saddle training due to my lack of small riders of quality. the little ones who ride her don't know about leads. i'm working on softening her vertically and laterally while ground driving. she's starting to "get it" i'd say the last 2 times. she bends inside around the corners and is breaking at the poll to reinback. the little girl who rides her is thrilled just to canter and kinda opens her fingers on the rein and goes forward in what i call the "cowboy" style! yee haw! i try to explain to her that her reins have to actively direct peeks head, neck and shoulders but she can't comprehend. i was working with her on identifying her diagonal by "feel" rather than "look" and she was almost in tears, saying "i don't know what you mean". i finally had her sit on my lap, facing away, and i "trotted" my legs and told her just like she could feel my right then left leg move, she can feel the horse's back move. she was freaked out and didn't get it at all. she's only 9 so it's hard to get through to kids sometimes. she's the one that's riding peek in the video of peek jumping and also running out. you can see in the "naughty" peek run out what happens when peek finally goes over the jump....the rider is completely behind and yanks up the rein to save herself. i told her it's no wondr peek doesn't want to go over the jump! lol. ouch!
