Kanna is a leisure horse of the French breed Auvergne. She joined me because the owner felt a bit stuck with certain things when riding Kanna. Finding balance and alignment can be the solution to many problems - also for leisure horses.
This week Tadjik had a lot of variety! I took him out into the forest next to Sahel two times. He is obviously used to doing that, which I knew. What he didn’t know so well is forest and the animals we have in our forest.
Tadjik feels like vacation in comparison to Zayin! He is so nice, happy and clear in his mind, it is just pure bliss to work with him! He is saying hello to everybody passing his stable, coming with ears forward when I call him for his daily play and is simply a happy little boy.
Tadjik is really settling down in the new environment, becoming very playful and funny. This week we played a lot with cavalettis and he got his first introduction to jumping gymnastics.
Tadjik will be 3 years old this spring, and he is with me in training since 1.February. His father is an Anglo-Arabian and his mother is a Belgian jumping mare. He is a nicely spirited Left brain extrovert, playful and sensitive but very down to earth and kind natured.
The goals for Shimmering Princess' Riding Foundation Training are to develop rhythm, relaxation and responsiveness, to equalize go and whoa and to establish positive reflex to the leg aids!
Princess is back to school after a little holiday in the field. She will now learn everything necessary to have a solid foundation as a riding horse. Playing on the ground and at Liberty has great value to me at this point.
