Mer tömkörning

Pepper fick ytterligare ett tömkörningspass, denna gång med lite bättre underlag. Han jobbade på bra i paddocken bredvid stonas hage, även när stona kom och galopperade runt i mörkret. Han söker sig bättre mot bettet, kan gå allt långsammare och nästan byta varv i gångart snabbare än skritt.(Utan att jag behöver springa, jag vill kunna gå när jag tömkör) Vi till och med testade några steg i galopp i varje varv. Duktig kille! Sedan var han trött, dags att återvända till stallet.

Percy fick komma in, bli borstad och så lekte jag med rep som viftade över hennes rygg och nuddade hennes kropp. Få se om det kan hjälpa tömkörningen.

Pepper got a new long reining training, this time with a little less ice. He worked well in the arena just at the side of the mares pasture – even when the mares stopped by, or more cantered by in the dark. He is getting a better contact with the bit, starts to be able to go slower while running faster than walk and it is nearly possible to change directions in a gait faster than walk. (Without me having to run, I want to be able to walk all the time). We even tried some strides in canter. Good boy! Then I noticed that he was tired and we headed back to the barn.

Percy got brushed and I played with the lead rope at her back, swinging it over her back and touching her with it. Maybe that can help her with the reins.
