Mares in Spring

Sassy sassy sassy is what I’m dealing with right now. Yesterday, I felt like I to pony-kick her to get her to walk forward. Today, I could barely put my leg on before she would squirt out from underneath me.

This is how much leg I'm using.  I actually helped shed out her winter hair.  And no, I was not mean.

Whichever way I look at it though we got in great workouts, and today had a really great 2nd half of our ride. After she stopped biting at the air and humping her back at me. (more sass) I was actually really proud of her trot to the left and right today, as it was improved and seemed much more balanced. I really focused on leaving my hands alone and pushing her forward correctly with my legs. Good results, but definitely more work in our future.

O has recently dropped some weight and we are working on putting it back on her. She’s been in a lot of work this winter and the temperatures have NOT been helpful. We are working on fattening pony back up.

Anyone good at confirmation stuff? I am not, and realize that she is a little oddly put together. Anyway, have at it!
