Its amazing to have been given so much freedom over the horses, I've been managing everything; from what time they come up to the compound (their evening paddock is about 5-10 minutes walk away) to who rides whom and when, taking bookings, and taking guests out riding.
Although I like to handle all the horses, my favourite is Bahati, and I've been riding him consistently over the Easter period (from the 1st April until now; around 10 days!) I've been riding in my Parelli halter, and he is already responding brilliantly. I've been asking him to do some yielding exercises, such as moving his hindquarters/forequarters and eventually, sideways (leg-yield) I was also proud to safely put a child on him; when I arrived I was told that Bahiti is not used for the guests as he is too fiesty (dominant). Its amazing to see the results after having ridden him for around 20 hours. He is already so much more chilled!
