Love the slalom analogy. We actually put on a Ken Smith pole bending clinic last spring (not sure if you are familiar with him) and that's how he describes it as well. He is the most sensitive horse I think I've ever ridden. Like you even think slow down and he's on it. He's been a good one for me though because prior to him I rode several crazy horses and he's super safe. Thanks so much for the advice!
It’s really a treat to ride a well broke horse who is so “feely” that you swear it’s reading your mind. You learn so much from them....even to the point that you have to pay attention to your eyeballs, I swear, and you sure as heck learn to never look down at them. They feel that.
I agree about Ken Smith. He’s a great instructor.
He's definitely pushed me to be a better rider!! He's a really neat horse. My four year old son rides him by himself, at home and at shows. Sometimes he frustrates the heck out of me because he forces me to be better! LOL but he's a cool one.
