Sea Sabre meets a drop bear (koala) on our forest ride. #SeaSabreHorse #thoroughbred #thoroughbredsofinstagram

Lots of laughter and smiles all-round today and I'm one proud chappy. Proud of the kids and proud of little Blue. The lessons took us all over the property. We went trotting up the hills, then right back down, the kids learning to sit deep and push their heels down and forward to stay balanced. Then we headed out to where the good grass grows and alternated between eating and trotting. We never stayed in one place for too long. Variety is key. Though I admit my foot hurt me quite badly despite having 4 socks on. Maybe it was actually due to the socks. Who knows. I was still able to run somewhat. At one point Blue parked himself at the top of a hill and refused to move. He looked at me in an amused sort of manner, big button eyes twinkling. I asked the girl if she wanted to have a go at holding the target stick, which she hesitantly did, then told her to pick a spot at the bottom of the paddock and to RUN without looking back. Off she went, and off went Blue, cantering down the hill with enthusiasm whilst I mud-skied pathetically behind em. Gone were the parking brakes and back to riding we went. Never did Blue look frustrated or uncomfortable. No communicative biting to tell me "that's enough now thanks" and even the kids could easily feed him. His little freckled face remained so bright that I dared to get one of the kids to give him the gentlest squeeze whilst riding towards me up the hill- and Blue happily accelerated into a trot. I nearly choked on the horse treats I was eating with excitement. What a legend, that lil horse. My oldest (and dare I say favourite) student has expressed keen interest in clicker training so at the end of her lesson, which was also Blue's last one of the day, I let her play around with the target on the ground. She was in charge of the target and treats, and i had the clicker to give her the feel of timing. What fun we had. How gentle Blue was with her. The video explains it better than I do.
