[RC] Days are getting longer - equine pilates anyone - Sheila_Larsen

As many may guess from previous posts I do clicker training.  So my horses
know how to pose, drop their noses to the ground when I raise my right arm
straight up, stand without being tied, do a side pass when I move sideways,
go back when I go back, do shoulder in while I am leading her  (also know
as the "why would you leave me game which has come in handy on the trail)
and oh exericise, one is learning equine pilates.  She is getting pretty
good about rocking back on her hind, and lifting her back and stomach.  Do
that for a few minutes a day and it makes a difference.  Ok not exactly
aerobic but you asked.

"For if one link in nature's chain might be lost, another might be lost,
until the whole of things will vanish by piecemeal."
