Horse Riding in Yorkshire : The Gate Ride : Part 1 : Can we get past the pigs!!
Why we call this the Gate Ride used to be quite obvious, however the gates aren't as much of a "problem" as they used to be but the name still sticks. On this ride, today, we wanted to see if we could persuade the horses to go past the pigs without one of us getting off and leading. We think that the main fear the horses have is that they know something is there but it's really difficult to see exactly what. I was really proud of Isabella showing great horsemanship in letting Dylan build his confidence up and decide on his own to go past. The fact he trotted is fine - next time will be easier for him because he was allowed to take his time.
I hope you enjoy this video. The next part will be coming up shortly.
Have a great day!
