Bato Loco aka “Tux” is really getting the idea of what collection is all about. Yeah! Circles are MUCH easier! He still tries to buck sometimes when we canter- No back pain, just a little mischief. I am learning the warning signs and am practicing some distraction techniques to keep him focused on me instead of his next sneaky plan. So far, so good!
Until next time…
I’ll be at the barn!
Sometimes a horse will buck because he cannot keep his balance or he could need chiropractic. Don’t always assume the worst. Try lunging at the canter to build up the muscles on the back end so the horse can learn to use himself properly without the weight of a rider.
