Roam: September 8

Catching a quick nap before our ride

This week may have been one of Roam's best weeks to date. We've continued to work on Bend at the Walk, Vertical Flexion at the Standstill, Draw to a Stop, & Backing. I also introduced Vertical Flexion at the Walk, which he caught onto quite quickly. We also began venturing outside of the arena & off of the place. The first day, we only made it down the lane before we had to hustle back to beat an incoming storm. Today, we made it to the gravel road for the first time. He did great! Not much bothered him. When we hit the road for the first several rides, I do a lot of trotting & loping on a loose rein. This helps with some of the noodly tendencies that horses have at a walk, looking at things & unsure how to stay right in the center of your reins & legs, for their first several outings. He walked over the culverts well & was curious, but not worried, about the old culvert in the ditch along the road. This week, I've continued to ride him in the Missing Link Snaffle. While he definitely still plays with it more than I would like (really about the only negative thing he's got going on right now), he's been doing better about holding it quiet from time to time. I'm hoping to have Jen look at him again next week since he's gone through the antibiotic so that she can work on his hind end again, along with his head/poll/neck.

Next week, while we may start with a warm-up in the arena, most of our time will likely be spent outside of the arena.

Next week's update will be posted on Saturday.

I do my best to get these updates posted in a timely manner, but it's not uncommon for me to be outside until after dark, depending on the weather, my schedule, & who gets worked when so updates will sometimes be posted quite late in the evening. Don't be alarmed if you don't see your update right away. In rare cases, I may have to push them until the next morning, but I'll reach out & let you know if so.
