After his well-earned vacation, Ransom and I gathered ourselves dressage, and headed to the arena. It was to be his first day back, and I promised him one thing..
If he'd stay light on the bit, head low, and respond to light pressure, I'd not ride collected. I'd keep a long rein, light hands.
We played for about 25 minutes, focusing on forward without speedy, and gentle, sweeping turns. I didn't expect perfect, and Ransom met his end of the deal.
Refreshing... to come off an intense two-day show, give the sweet man three days off, and find Ransom just as I left him - ready for action.
