Before and After

Rosie's walk July 2011

Rosie's walk June 2012

**ignore my leg back too far**

Her walk and body has changed so much just over the past 8 days or so.  I'm riding in a completely different manner now and the changes to Rosie's physical and mental being have been quick and dramatic.  I'm so excited to see what she looks like in a month, three months,  June 2013....

You will also see that I changed bits - she was previously ridden in an egg but d-ring snaffle.  I changed to a Boucher - single jointed snaffle, and I just got a french link Boucher today that I'm going to try tomorrow.   Boucher puts poll pressure as well as the normal pressure on lips, tongue, mouth that snaffle does.  The change was immediate there too.  That little bit of poll pressure reminds her to get off my hands and hold herself up.


  1. She does look more relaxed and rounded. I like your hand and elbow position in the second photo more than the first. We'll ignore the leg position as requested ;)

    Keep up the good work.


  2. Wow! Such a huge difference. She...and you, look amazing!!!



Happy Trails!
