October 27

24 days boarded
14 days training

Miami has been full of energy the last few days, and she's been faster and more high energy than I would like, under saddle. So today I did a lot of ground work with her.. The beginning of the session I put her on the lunge line, and she immediately started to trot. I just let her go, and she broke into the canter. I left her to do her own thing until she worked it out of her system.

Once she relaxed, I put the side reins on her and we did a lot of time with the side reins on to bring her head down and help to slow her stride, and relax. She was pretty tired by the end of the workout.

I hopped on and rode her for only about ten minutes, all walking. Lots of bending and turns, and leg yields.. and we worked in the corner game.
