View Full Version : Some pics of Bs backing progress

25th May 2010, 08:32 PM
B is doing really well.
Julie gets on off the ground now or a mounting block. B just stands there :)
shes been out hacking and been good as gold.
and shes now cantering entire circuits of the school. Julie has only been coming 2-3 times a week so progress isnt as fast as it could be, but Bey is perfectly relaxed about the whole thing, which is what matters more.
as one can see the walk work is really coming on with her accepting contact and working into it more. trot will take longer as she needs to get stronger in the back- but shes very forward :evilgrin:
shes also growing- look a those LUGS!
so stressed...

Bey looks amaaaazing!

So pleased she is taking to being ridden so well. Though slightly disapointing for the viewers - we were expecting bouncy Bey! :lol: I remember seeing all her crazy pics from when she was ickle and everyone always saying "she's going to be fun to back" etc :lol:

Wow! How stunning is she?? Such a pretty mare with alot of presence.

You are very luck, I do so hope Alfie will be as good as this, but siomething tells me i'm not gonna be as lucky on board as I am on the ground with him.

she spooked today as there was something horse eating in the corner of the field but J said she felt really good- ie her back wasnt up or ready to buck, she was just jumpy. until i stood in the corner and she realised there was nothing there :o
she said shes highly unlikely to be a horse that would try to get you off, if anyone did come off it would be an accident. no pressure then! :ashamed:
shes ready for more canter work now. will pop a vid of her up at some point too, her walk is quite established now :)
