Sidepasses

Good day everyone! I am working on my sidepasses. I am getting good going to the left, going right is still hard for me. The DOR says that part of my problem going right is the placement of her left leg. She shattered her left knee and can't always tell exactly where her leg is. She is working on placing it better and I am working on paying attention to the other cues-we will get it right with practice. I am still pretty new at this maneuver, but I think I am giving it a good try. I do well after a bit of practice on the rail, but still can't do it out in the open. The DOR and I will continue to work on it. But for now she is happy he can get me next to the fence to pick up a water bottle or her camera.
You can see the SCC and Coelho taking a lesson in the background. Our instructor comes down from Ellensburg and we love to work with her.
The DOR would like to thank
Get Moving with Mountain Woman and Tahtimbo for the insperation their new blog is giving to so many! She has lost five pounds this past week following their suggestions. I hear she is planning on loosing a hundred pounds, if she does that I may not know who is riding me LOL!
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR.

So exciting. I just started side passing and I am loving it. I think it impresses the mares. :)

Jack, your poor DOR has had a lifetime of smashing up her bod. Do hug her, but maybe carefully!

Oh Jack...I can see the writing on the wall. Soon you will be able to brag that you can open and close a gate do that your DOR does not have to dismount to do it for you!!!

I need to teach Pokey to sidepass. It sure would help when trying to open the gate to the round pen.
