Next we had a look at his long-reining. His owner was interested to see whether he would be able to find long and low in a Dually where he was sometimes hesitant to do so in a bridle and bit. By putting a little tiny pressure on the inside rein it was possible to make the request and, as soon as he answered, I placed a release in the line. He did it so well.
Meanwhile Jessica was ridden out in the Forest for the very first time today.
Email received 16.2.13: "I used the panels today and loaded Kentucky to eat his breakfast in the lorry. Decided I wanted the security of the panels to try and avoid a "no" and it worked a treat. Went on a nice hack and came back and did some loading to check he was okay. Loaded about 15 times. A couple of times he hesitated but I just put a put a bit of pressure on the Dually and up he came." AA
