14th August, 2014 Le Rain

Last day at Lorraine's and we were due to ride home but a severe weather warning put us off. The horses went home by bus instead. Unofficial camp finished off with a super lesson with Amanda Barton during which Theoden demonstrated his new ability to soften at any rein length. It may not look perfect yet but it feels great. All achieved out on the trail...

No pressure on the reins - he feels absolutely soft and I am offering him the same back. Too over bent for my liking but this was momentary.

Stopping on soft - everything needs to end on soft

Sarah look up! Again, slightly over bent but not leaning in the slightest.

Starting to ask for the same in trot. I need to rise less in my trot.
