Prince Elmelund is now 4 years old. After 1 year longe training and work in hand, he has now become very strong, with a lot of balance and he is very stable on his feet.
4 months ago was the last time we did the exercises to get him used to the weight of the rider. In those 4 months we focussed mostly on getting him physically stronger.
He is strong as a bear, so carrying the weight of a rider is now part of the training again.
PE is very at ease in Heteren, and is now used to his new training environment. The very big longe circle is perfect for the whole getting-used-to-the-rider process.
We started the ‘hanging’ again. But PE is super relaxed.
”Sitting” he also finds fairly normal:
He is always in for a treat:
He has a lot of balance and strength and he is very stable on his feet. It shows when you give him a treat ‘from up there’. He bends just as easily without loosing the balance on his four legs.
