Echo has gotten right back into the swing of things! After a couple initial restarting rides, Echo is now riding just like she was before she left. She participated in both the groundwork and the riding class in the recent Joel Conner clinic and did phenomenally! We were able to clear up some braces in her front end and really helped her quiet her mouth on the bit. Echo made huge strides in her soft feel work and has even started leg yielding. We still need to work on moving out in a timely manner, as she has a tendency to kick out when we insist that she lope and she could still use further help balancing her hindquarters and frontquarters.
Overall, we’re thrilled to have Echo back in the horsemanship program as she will start helping greener volunteers learn the horsemanship so that they may help other horses in the future!
