Hi everyone! Today we are going to ride our ponies. First Kukka will ride his pony Kanalas and them my mare Gamilla. Kanalas is quite a special pony. We have had so many problems with him! He has been difficult to mount. And almost everything has been hard with him! Only grooming has always been easy to do with him. But now he is a lot easier! About half a year ago life got easier with him. I can help you a bit because that stool is quite slippery. We are here in Tampere Finland. We have finally winter and snow here in Tampere region so it’s nice to ride. Yes Kanalas that’s camera. Horses are now back in larger pastures and not anymore in smaller corrals. They have so much fun there in the snow. Ride him so that he has to work! That way he doesn’t concentrate on that sound of chain saw. Well done! More work! That was very good trot, good! Now we have an other pony. Kukka rides my mare Gamilla. She rides bareback. Don’t pull your inner hand back. Inner hand more forward! But don’t loose the rein contact. Well done! Good! Turn your look and pelvis. Well done, Kukka! Soft inner hand Now your legs are relax, good! Turn your shoulders Fists up! Keep your inner hand as high as outer one Yes, that’s right! Good! Round your lower back little bit But keep your upper back straight Very good Don’t balance yourself on inner rein Inner hand needs to be very soft Relax your shoulders Remember to breathe all the time Well done Now she is happy and can move easily. Now I take some water Then I add some warm water Hi Gamilla! They are so excited because their friends are out in that large pasture. They can run and play on snow I wonder if our water is already hot in electric kettle so that we can wash horses’ boots What do you think about it, Gamilla? Kukka, you can put halters on Gamilla and Kanalas. Gamilla and Kanalas are neighbours in the stable Kanalas is so small we can’t see him almost at all Maybe our water has already boiled It’s important to treat horse equipment properly. That way they last longer. It’s not that hard to do if we do it regularly And of course it’s important to wash bits properly Otherwise dirt dries and it can hurt horse’s mouth You can bring them on their place And them we need to wash those boots We sweep the floor everytime before we leave the stable. In that way the stable will be nice for others to come Now we check that everything is on their place And then we leave home. See you! Bye!
