Ich habe tolle Neuigkeiten erhalten, die ich euch natürlich nicht vorenthalten möchte. Im gestrigen Post habe ich es schon angesprochen. Die Regenzeit 🌧️ hat hier nun angefangen. Es regnet zwar nicht täglich, aber es regnet viel und leider auch wirklich komplett den ganzen Tag durch. Da wir bei uns am Stall einen wunderschönen Reitplatz haben und keine Halle, habe ich mich dazu entschlossen, bei der Reitanlage direkt nebenan anzufragen. Dieser "Luxusstall" gehört einer bekannten und tollen Dressurreiterin und ich freue mich, ab sofort mit Doris dort trainieren zu können 😍. Der Stall "Grand Pins" hat eine wunderschöne, mega große Halle 😱und eine tolle Longierhalle. Gerade jetzt in der dunklen Jahreszeit mit viel Regen ist es für uns eine tolle Möglichkeit. Die Reitanlage ist direkt nebenan und es sind nur ein paar Minuten zu Fuß 👍🏼 Ich freue mich wahnsinnig und bin schon echt gespannt.
Heute Abend werden wir das erste Mal dort trainieren. Meine Trainerin kommt mit und wird Doris 🐴 ebenfalls reiten, denn heute ist wieder Bereittag und gerade in einer neuen Umgebung gar nicht mal so doof, dass sie das macht 😅
Wenn ihr Lust habt, dann nehme ich euch heute Abend in der Story mit ❓
Soll ich euch mal Bilder von der Reitanlage zeigen ❓
Ich würde später dann einen extra Post dazu machen. Es lohnt sich definitiv 💖
Ce petit poy était carrément trop mimi et il sautait de fou. J’étais obligé de le photographier.
Luminosité pas top pour arriver à faire quelque chose de bien .. mais bon !
Vous en pensez quoi ? #horsegraphie#equitation#photography#photoequine
One of our other posts was about a tiny human and a tiny pony. This one is about a tiny person and a big horse (Gandolf is about 17.2hh). He currently does 2'9 with his teenaged rider and does walk trot ground poles with his little one (Zoe who's pictured, only 8 years old!) Gandolf used to do equitation medals in his prime. #usef#ushja#equestrian#equitation#hunterjumper#utshorsemanship

#Repost @backtobasicshorsework: “I have so much more confidence in my ability to handle the horses I love with compassion, thanks to #equitationscience .”
“The horse pictured appears to have a mildly swollen half shut eye. Probably thanks to all the grass seeds literally everywhere right now. Things in eyes are bad so this morning I flushed his eye out best I could, and I will do so again this afternoon if it hasn't improved.”
“Doing this sort of uncomfortable thing with your horse does not gain you any appreciation. All horse owners can appreciate this. However, this morning the procedure went very very well.
Because I applied learning theory.”
“I remembered to not continually pair my hand on his nose with the hose pressure, otherwise he would anticipate the hose from my hand raising.
I started small with the hose on his face under his eye, and I delivered carrot pieces.
He likes carrot. This is called counter conditioning because it is making an uncomfortable process more attractive because food.”
“I let the water run into his eye, and when he kept his head still I then immediately removed the hose. This shows him two things: 1) if I bear it then it will go away, and 2) the discomfort isn't constant and inescapable.”
“Ialso delivered carrot pieces to his lips when he had his eye shut to the water, but his head still. I didn't give carrot every time. It was delivered at a variable rate. This is most effective for reinforcing the behaviour, in this case holding his head still for me. I did my best to keep the hose on him as he moved his head around. The water is uncomfortable (aversive) so I should expect him to try to get rid of it. As long as I do not let the pressure be removed when he moves his head then I make him holding his head still more likely, which I then reward.
Small errors on my part resulted in him stepping back slowly, but no more than one step at a time. I was prepared and the hose was long enough to move with him.
I succeeded in flushing his eye for much longer than I anticipated, and with a much reduced stress response."

You guys. My horse is afraid of a hay bale. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Thank you so much, @_camlovesyou_ for this amazing video!!! I’m so stressed right now, but this makes me feel better.
Just got home from the Cheryl and Co banquet I got a reserve champion and a third in year end awards! So proud of this little nug and can't wait to continue showing this season!
First ride back was successful 💛 I missed him so much uhg, poor boy is still slick from his old heated barn but we are blanketing him heavy w/ a hood and he should start growing hair soon!! Very excited for our future!
We eventually redeemed ourselves and did a small course without dying 😂
So incredibly grateful for this amazing opportunity to learn from someone like Stephen Bradley, ride fantastic ponies like Olly, and be surrounded by such an encouraging group ladies.
Last night I jumped Orlando around and he felt like a million bucks!!! 💵💵💵If he keeps feeling this good and wanting to work I'm going to have to get him clipped... but holding off bc any severe fur/clip lines are just going to look so absurd 🙈
I would loooove to get some cute Christmas pictures of him but I just know he'd never cooperate😂 I'm sure he'd try to eat everything. He's just so handsome though!❤️ Excited to be able to be at the barn more when I'm done with classes for the semester.
