Threw a bareback pad on Gent and went for a little spin as a nasty storm was coming in. Didn't want him to get really hot so we didn't work too hard. Don't mind my husband's lovely commentary LOL.

What a nice little canter, you guys look GREAT! He's come a long ways, hasn't he? :love:

Do you have a side pass bootcamp I can enlist Miss Mare in? lol It still hasn't clicked for her (under saddle) yet.

Oh, my goodness! Gent, I agree with the commentary, that is awesome! I love the part at about :50 (after side steps to your left/my right as I watch) where you dip your head just a tiny bit -- looks like you're taking a bow! YAAAY! You are so handsome and I enjoyed watching you!

Do you have a fence you can put her on? That really helped me teach him. I face him toward the fence and hold him with my hands so he doen't turn and than just put light pressure until he moves even a little to the side, whichever way I'm asking. Then let go right away. He learned it in one day with the help of the fence. That really made a big difference, so if you can use a fenceline to practice that will really help. Under actual saddle he's a bit more responsive. He is sometimes naughty with the bareback pad on LOL.

We've tried the fence "trick" and she attempts to back...every single time. (argh!) When I correct her, she visibly becomes confused/irritated because she doesn't know what I'm asking. It's weird because on the ground, she'll sidepass, no problem. But under saddle, it's a different story. (She can be a bit of a ditz sometimes... kinda like her mom. :D )

How's Miss Diva?

LOL silly mare you have, who I have also not seen in forever. Updates young lady! I want to see pics!

I have a longish video clip of Diva I'll put up but don't feel obligated to watch the whole thing. We are working on retraining and she is a bit pacy now but she's been through a lot. Had a nasty bout with pigeon fever that she is just now fully recovering from. Ended up with a bed sore on her hind pastern, which she wears a special boot for and it's healing. She got the pigeon fever in her head, it was horrid, swollen to twice its size. A few times I thought she might not make it. She was really sick, but she's doing better now.

Here is the clip.
