Threat Level Rainbow


Lately, Jet and I have been trying to ride a bit outside between rainstorms.  Usually the transition between riding mostly inside in the winter to riding mostly outside in the spring can be a bit dicey with Jet.  Some wild spooking and lack of relaxation have been pretty much the norm in past years.  The threat level would vary from red, to orange, to yellow but there was usually a lot of tension involved and thoughts of wearing a safety vest for the first couple of weeks.  This year has been a bit different though, because of a combination of the techniques of Dressage Naturally and the TRT Method. As I was riding around outside the other day I jokingly thought to myself, "If he had a threat level it would be set at rainbow."  It's a really nice feeling being at rainbow.  I thought I might never get there with this particular horse.


  1. Sounds like a great place to be at with him!

    1. Thanks Wendy! Not sure if it is a blip in the road or the result of training but either way I will take it!
