Finally the rain stopped and it is a glorious sunny day here on the east coast of Jutland, Denmark.
So of course, I had to ride my steed today.
I had no problems with the bridle and bit, though I did put it in and take it out again and reward Shilo,
There were no problems what so ever , however, Shilo knew that I had a pocket with treats in, because of the bit, so his focus was just on how he could get hold of the next treat.
Mounting was no problem but walking straight forward......NO.....He turned around and around in circles with his head pointing to me ( give me food !!!)
I should of known, and it was an oversight on my part.
Forward motion in a straight line was not possible because he could just not focus on anything other than the treats.
So we practiced backing up and turning left and right, which went well.
No treats in the pocket tomorrow, so let's see if I can get a full walk around the arena!!
I'm only focusing on the positive points of our session today, it was my fault , I'm just very happy that he didn't bolt.
First ride alone at home.
