Q: Help! I have trouble sitting the trot. Any ideas?
A: Yes! Ground driving. We know horses learn by having time
to process, and it turns out people need that time, too. When
you ground drive, you walk behind the horse with your legs moving in rhythm with the horse's back legs. There is something about that process that helps riders understand how the back end of the horse moves. Over time, when they get back on , their balance and sit-trot has improved. When ground driving, safety first. Only drive in an enclosed area with no other animals and never wrap the lines around your hand.
When writing fiction, make a timeline for your characters.Few things take a reader out of a story more quickly than to have a character wake up, for example, on Wednesday morning, and later in the day it is Tuesday. (Unless you have a time travel story line!) The timeline can also help you keep track of all of your characters so you know where each of them are on any given day and time.
The Rein Equation published in November 2020. At a competitive trail competition Cat Enright finds the body of one of the riders, which ultimately causes Cat to doubt her closest friends and neighbors. When hunky country music star Keith Carson saves Cat’s life, she struggles to remember details that can point her toward the killer––before the killer comes for her. Aided by her usual eclectic cast, including the (possibly) psychic mare, Sally Blue, Cat wins in the end, only to lose what she loves the most.
