So you want me to move with you on my back??
The light bulb has been flickering, and suddenly in our last two rides Sage has figured out exactly what I want! She walks forward, she stops, she backs, she steers--and fairly responsively for a green horse. We've even ridden out of the roundpen twice now. She's finally realized that I'm not going to fall off or do something crazy if she moves, and since I ride in basically a rope halter with a loose rein, she feels quite free and forward. A few weeks ago I didn't think I'd be saying that! Maybe we'll try a trot soon?
