...and so everything is changing!?
The day I was supposed to post this blog, the Covid-19 virus came, and turned the world upside down. Suddenly, we are all in the middle of a world wide crisis. I wondered if I should write a new blog, abuot that sudden situation, but my conclution were-NO! In this time of crisis, it is more important than ever, to try to keep our daily routines. Our TOPIC OF THE MONTH blogs, are exactly that, a tool for staying with our routines, and stick to the plan!
So that is what we do, cling to our plan the best we can.
The topic of march
The last couple of months we have worked with canter and transitions, and the topic of March, is "the different arena patterns". We are choosing this because it is a perfect diagnostic tool, in finding lacks and gaps in our education. Both for horse and rider.
It reveals where you are in your riding today, and give you the perfect opportunety to simplify your aids if needed, or you can add different schools into the patterns, to make them more interesting for your horse, or to improve his balance and suppleness. It all depends on what is needed in your education right now.
All these questions will be answered as soon as we start riding different patterns. And, that is exactly what we are going to do this month!
change of plans?
The spring is coming to Norway, and the clinic season was about to start. Because of the pandemic, we are all stuck around our homes, and all clinics are cancelled. We, as humans, are rapidly adapting to the new situation and instructors all over the world are offering online lessons in different forms. In this case, it is important to be prepared in knowing what we need the different instuctores to look at, and help us with. Riding the arena patterns as neat as possible, is a great thing to do to figure those things out.
My suggestuon for everyone these days, are to stay put, be patient, practice with your horse, and figure out what you might need some help with.
Contact your trainer, and try out differtent online sessions.
