Little Things Matter a Lot!

It is so nice to see a horse working at the higher levels of training, perhaps making fabulous Piaffe steps or a powerful School Halt, but actually the little things really matter a lot more than these more obviously impressive movements.

Here, in this photo taken by Deborah Heynes Photography at a recent clinic with Kathrin Branderup – Tannous, my beloved little pony Sunny Boy is working so nicely and softly on the lunge, giving me such a good bend, and so is working straight around a circle to the left in walk.

This is something he finds hard to do, so it may be a little thing to some, but is a very big and important thing for him.
