We have a new trainer at the barn now. Her name is Staci. She likes to make sure all of the lesson horses are worked on a regular schedule.
She uses lungeing as the first step to get them fit and ready for work.
Staci also believes that the use of side reins helps train our horses to yield to pressure.
She is using a vaulting surcingle on Teyla instead of our training surcingle because it fits her better. The surcingle has rings where the side reins can be clipped.
