Training green baby horses once they're past the inital direction and speed part isn't too exciting to update. Or at least it shouldn't be. The plan with Jadey is to still head towards competing at 3rd level end of 2017/early 2018 so I can focus on Vana. The main things we're working on with her are strength, flexibility, balance, rhythm, etc. You know, all the goodies.
She's naturally quite balanced in general so it's a blast to ride her. Also her mind is the best so she learns really well. Just make sure you have some plans and goals and be honest with her. No biggy.
We're specifically working on getting lateral work really nice as well as balance in the canter. I started adding in counter canter and she's doing really well with that too. We're not having blow ups like we did in 2015 and she's buckling down and being a great student. The addition of walk/canter transistions has her pretty happy and we still do some "no rein" things to work on our seat responsiveness. Oh and its fun too of course.
