As I mentioned a few posts ago, Steen and I have been acting as a sort of mobile round pen for Brian and Nevada sometimes. When I’m setting a boundary and a cadence, Brian can worry less about those things and think more about keeping her in a proper bend and getting her more comfortable with understanding his legs. It also helps add some impulsion and motivation to turning around. Recently, Nevada is starting to get the idea that she can plant her hind and pivot to keep up when Steen and I change directions.

Amusingly, a couple times when Brian has left her in the arena to do something, she’s decided that she’s happiest following me and Steen, sans rider. At least, as long as sticking with us doesn’t become too much work . . .

Maybe she's practicing? 🙂 I swear Trekker used to do that when I was working on patterns. And Tranikla watches other horses and takes notes.
