Day 2 Horse Expo - Jumping Courses

 These photos are from day 2 of Expo.  We did a small group lesson with Cole, Bit of Honey Training's lesson horse, and Alek the Fjord who joined us again.  Our courses were set by the phenomenal jump crew.  Unfortunately most of the action photos came out too blurry, but here are some stills of the discussions and exercises.
6a and 6c , the left side of this illustration, were the two diagram exercises we worked on Day 2

Ramona working on some Centered Riding techniques
 Ramona had a lot of tension in her neck and shoulders.  We used some Centered Riding techniques to loosen and release the muscles in a very passive way.  Doing this allowed her horse to soften and swing through his shoulders as well.  When we work with horses we are simply working in a mirror.  As we improve our own body mechanics and mental state, the horses improve!
