We’ve got our newest recruits out and hacking today! Having had a month of lunging with his owners the 4 yo novice hack  had a week of walking up the hill in the lunge lo then I led Stacey out on him yesterday and today he hacked following Brew, the coloured cob I rode last season.  He was an absolute star.

The 5yo section d has also been walked out but for longer as he hadn’t had the lunge work . I led Stacey out on him today but once on the bridleway, let them go off on their own. He too was fantastic and very relaxed.

I’ve found this system of walking up the hill to build top line and core strength works much better than lunging   .
