Here is a video of one of our rides out in the snow this winter with Bella and Lutin,
filmed with a GoPro mounted on a stabilising stick.
Not much news these days, we are enjoying a quieter period to consolidate on what has already been learnt and to get to know Starlight better. Lutin and Bella are enjoying lots of rest before the busy February period and the beginning of the competition season. All the horses are being introduced to the TRT method in groundwork; a recent discovery. An interesting method with a lot of good sense and horse sense; now to see how the horses adapt to it. As with any method, it is important to keep a flexible and open mind to adapt it to the individuality of each horse.
We are also enjoying the white blanket of snow that has covered the area for a few days. Always as much joy to go out riding in the
snow, and some very pleasant surprises with close up encounters of chamois and a deer not at all put out by the proximity of the horses.
