Oct 2019 - new schooling livery Larry and Charlotte follow-up lesson
This month we introduce our latest schoooling livery, Larry, who is a 7 yr old ISH, part Oldenburg, part Irish Draft, belonging to Roz Mather who sent him to us to school whilst she recovers from a major operation.
Larry is a super chap, a total klutz on the ground, had no spatial awareness, treading on everyone's feet! He is an absolute filthy bog beast in the stable but his temperament under saddle, once he is working, is a dream. Mounting was a different thing, as you will see in the first video, he is totally unafraid and was just testing us out. He is such a character!
Heather is working him much more German school than French, although the relaxation of the jaw from the French school, is still paramount and will explain more in the November videos. Larry is here for another 3 weeks in December, but progress will be slow with him due to his huge paces, the walk especially, and he needs time to strengthen and balance.
We have teacher training this week, so Heather is going to try to film some of the discussion on the different schools of training, as we hope that will also be of interest and further inform regarding Larry's training.
Also included this month is a follow-up lesson with Charlotte on her mare Summer, featured in previous months' videos.
