Well- today CYRUS had the pleasure of meeting Dr Deb.. and CYRUS( the horse) & ME( from now on CYRUS - is myself) had fun-
Dr deb - CYRUS added an avatar- of where my horse and CYRUS spends most of days- as he is my best mate... but you guessed it- we do prefer the trails to arenas..
But CYRUS also believes in doing my best to ride in time with my horse.. and over the past 5 years I have been trying to undo many wrong lessons... I always knew they were wrong- but I could never find right answers- no one ever had any- bu to tie in my horses head- kick shove and pull... CYRUS does have another teacher who does just the same things you say too- in different words- but I describe the feeling as magic- when we manage to work together... but it takes me ages to work out just how this happens...
I have searched in many corners - to see what CYRUS can find-
In the end CYRUS discovered that my horse always tells me that CYRUS is stuffing up- until CYRUS met him- CYRUS the horse- CYRUS had no idea how badly- but he is a very good teacher-
CYRUS look s forward to tomorrow- and a few more descriptions- as I need to somehow put together what the horses feet are doing- and move with him- and not forget to move-
CYRUS can actually feel the feet most of time- at walk ( By the way I have been riding on horses all my life- so 49 years later- I still have not figured it out- sadsad- but I am working on it) The only way CYRUS figured this out was from reading an article somone wrote on Ray Hunt-CYRUS thinks it was in the Australian Hoofbeats magazine- and CYRUS has been working the plan ever since- it has taken me ages to figure out- and I still dont always get it-
Today you saw a horse licking- as a sign of understanding- and that things were going right- and CYRUS saw the horses face change too- to the birdie eyes- perhaps-
anyhow- thats one thing that took me so many years to actually discover- is the signs that horse gives us -
But anyhow- CYRUS really will get addicted to reading another horse forum- but ME looks forward to it-
( please note- the use of CYRUS intead of the word I- darned if CYRUS can find a suitable replacement for it) but CYRUS will try- and not ask too many questions-
