Lunge lesson 

Ola Ola,


A while ago I started using a lunge girth when lunging Grumpy, but I felt a bit insecure about using the ropes. So today I had a lesson with my trainer. 

Grumpy is a horse that loves walking on his forehand instead of using his back legs. Which in return isn’t good for his back at all and his backlegs kinda just dribbles along. Not the best look. So today my trainer showed me some techniques to get him more forward and on his backlegs. I have noticed that since I’ve started using the girth he has built a lot more backmuscles, which is really important for him. He still has a long way to go, but we have at least started moving. I need to work on becoming a bit more dominant which became very apparent as my trainer only had to say hoopla and he started cantering. So if anyone got “dominance” tips, feel free to share them. 

He was pretty sweaty after the lesson, so I let him chill out and roll around in the sand before he got a good brush.
