welcome to hc
Yesterday's Ride:Today I rode Navajo again...I decided to work mainly on making sure he knows what my different leg cues mean so that we can move on to more difficult things. Well He did really goo all except he didn't want to trot when I asked for it...He decided he is going to trot when he wants to trot...Well He found out that wasn't the smartest thing to do...He ended up doing more trotting whenever I told him to and not when he WANTED to. That is going to need some work but eventually he will get it..hehe. Then I decided to see if he knew how to move his forequarters when on him.. He didn't know what I was asking and kept moving his hindquarters...He was gettting frustrated I could tell...So we did some backing and other things...We trotted back and I got off and showed him how to move his forequarters from the ground...He still needs a LOT of work with that..He is not light at all in that area..So tomorrow instead of riding we are going to work on that.
Leg cues Navajo knows:
that when I press my calf against either of his sides it means over off of the leg. (am not sure if this one should also be used for the sidepass or not)
that when I press both heels against his side to go faster no matter the gait.
that when I press both calves against his side it means back up.
Leg cues he needs to learn:
that when I move my calf forward out of the home position it means to move his forehand over.
that when I move my calf back out of the home position it means to move his hindquarters.
Now I am trying to figure out a cue for the sidepass...oh I know...when I press either of my heels agains his side it means to sidepass in the that direction (0r off of my heel)..I think that should work.
I think this should work. It is going to need work but I think we will be able to achieve it!! Thanks Ruth Ann N Navajo *4 December HOTM*
