Back In Harness

Training Journal

 

 
Milton is back in harness. What with one thing and another – Milton’s show schedule, Coach Courtney’s show schedule – we have not driven him since spring.

After a small kerfuffle at the start, he was a star. A slow star, but a star. Quiet, relaxed, pleasant. I’m not happy about the kerfuffle, but we will keep working at Stepping Stone Farm under the watchful eye of Coach Courtney until we can hitch reliably on our own, as we used to.

All of the long-lining has increased the strength and flexibility of his topline. He was almost tracking up at a casual walk. He still prefers cones over doing laps around the the ring. Like driver, like horse.

Thank you for reading,
Katherine Walcott
