Australian Brumby Challenge ©
Early this week I rode Ballarat, working on softening to a contact. It is something she does very well, with a natural carriage. I feel way to big on her, so have mostly been having the kids ride her, but it’s important to get the basics right for her as I want her to have a super soft mouth so have been doing much of this standing beside her on the ground, and also for short rides. She has been very sensitive in the girth area this week so have been giving her lots of massages and also treating her for ulcers. I then spent the past five days in the UK so Ballarat has been having a holiday in the paddock.
