|"Walking is the key to my brain."|
2. Circle the show ring at a collected walk. This brilliant tool is one I accidentally picked up this weekend, and will be keeping around. Riding such a hot horse, it can be very hard to dance the line of "brilliant" and "too hot to handle." Walking in a nice active connection helps me stay balanced between the two. The fact that it also helps conserve some of Pig's energy helps a lot, too! Walking keeps him engaged and thinking without wearing or stressing him out.
|Just like Laura Graves.... ;)|
|Yes. He piled up all the hay he refused to eat into a big fluffy bed and slept on it. He's basically a dog.|
