Badass mode: activated! 👊💥
When Leia and I started our training she could hardly canter. She had absolutely zero control over her body, trotting on a right bend was impossible and I’ve seen her literally stumble and fall on flat ground. I can’t count the amount of ditches we’ve suddenly fallen into on our hacks. On top of this she wasn’t particularly interested in moving. Yes, this is the same horse pictured above!
Playfulness has been everything for Leia. Letting her experience that playing, dancing, moving is FUN! “Kill the stick”, where she’s chasing it with her front legs, was something we came up with six years ago and it was a true game changer. Since then that particular exercise has helped me help countless horses. 🤸♀️ And Leia is now one of the most badass girls I know. Let your horse be fierce, guys!
