I have started to go into movement with my husband’s help from the ground.
His job is to just walk on a circle, not pulling on the line and keeping a bit distance to the horse and for a not-horse person he is doing great.
Lucano is calm and relaxed walking his rounds. As this is the very beginning my main goal for a few days is to get him as comfortable as possible with me on top.
I also keep the sessions very short not asking for too many rounds because I want him to find pleasure in this new situation and that we end on a good note, so he has nice memories and keeps trust in me.
In a few days, when the mounting, walking in circles, stopping and halting is no big deal anymore I will introduce more aids so I can come off the line.
