Breaking Brett in 45 minutes [02:48]
The only thing not shown is the 30 minutes of groundwork before I rode him for 15 minutes. Thankfully he was a good kid and didn't buck ever :) Not saying whether a horse should be started this fast or not, but this is the racing industry and we have 15 to do every day so you have to turn them out fast. Now he will get going in the newmarket harbour and a jockey pad and once he finishes his pre-training fitness he will go to the track!

Billy - The third ride [03:12]
Hi everyone! So Billy is back in action again! I gave him the week off as he was a bit off colour from being kicked in the field, and the poor thing's feeties were a bit tender from being quite overdue for a trim. Been doing a bit of groundwork with the boy, starting to do a bit of lunging in the roundyard as we're not entirely sure of doing it on a lunge line as of yet, lol. You will notice there's quite a bit of work done in the walk in this video, sorry if it's a bit bland to watch, but that's what we do at home so you may as well see it in my videos! Most of the ride was done in the walk, lots of halt transitions in there, and once we had that down pat without a fuss we had a play in the trot and a brief canter just to see what he'd do! This week will be a lunging bootcamp week to try and get him a bit more balanced to improve the ridden flat work, and to muscle him up a bit too. I'll just touch on a couple of things, following my last video I got a TON of emails asking questions, so here are the main couple of things addressed! You will notice my hands are quite wide and I don't have a heap of contact. Looseish contact is because I'm more concerned with him moving freely forward, rather than jamming him into an outline. In my opinion it is better to have them forward and soft then in a frame and not going anywhere. Anyone can jam a horse up to try and make it look 'pretty'. I would rather have them working properly. I'm also not concerned with my position on a green ...

Lofty comes home and his first ride [03:31]
*Music is not mine* Hey everyone! Finally another video up, it feels like ages since my last one! Lofty came home 2 Sundays ago, and due to us having nowhere to ride we have just been doing some basic groundwork, grooming, getting to know each other etc.. The arena is now back in action so last night I thought I'd jump on and have our first ride since coming home and he was unreal. Had one little spook at the start, but other than that, and being a bit strong he was just ace. The chick in the white top is my bestie, Bonnie who is awesome! Thanks Bon for being there for his first ride and helping out :) The plan is to ease him into full work over the next couple of weeks. We have a heap of things to work on, so stay tuned! Thanks to everyone that's subscribed, I think there's 210 of you now, I appreciate it heaps, and all the comments and messages so thank you! :) xx
