Stretching at walk after a bit of fun driving an obstacle. This is so important to lengthen all his top line muscles after canter and tight turns. Issy wasn’t always good at relaxing after the excitement of obstacle driving.
Doug is coming on well learning to pull the carriage. He is a great little fella and not struggling,even with Peter in the carriage. He is happily pulling and doing difficult turns.
Daily driving for the liveries is through an obstacle getting them all more supple bending around the different shapes in a good forward rhythm. All the horses old and younge are having fun doing different challenges.
