Long Rein Play

The last couple of days have been really fun!
I haven't been able to ride much, but that's been fine with me. Our family has just been doing a lot of things inside. We made a TON of grape jelly, and we're making grape juice tonight. It has been really fun, but I'm ready for a quiet Monday and Tuesday. :-)

So yesterday and today Eddie and I played with our long reins. We did lots of point to point, jumped over a lot of things, and played with our direction-going.
Softness has also been one huge thing we've been working with. Softness comes from the inside of the horse, not the outside. Lightness comes from the outside. It has taken a while to get to where our softness is right now. He is almost always willing to play, as long as I give him some time to wake up, ;-) and we can ride every day. It's just a matter of me getting both of us prepared for it.
So we've come a long way! And you can never loose sight of that! :-)

Anyway, we did some more long reins, then we played with some sidepasses at the trot. He did SO well! We didn't get it all the way, but we were pretty darn close! So we had a lot of fun with that!

Lovin the journey!
