2018 Scholarship Recipient Victoria Fritch  

I truly enjoyed my time working with Patrick King on Wednesday, August 15.  This was an experience that took me way outside my comfort zone (which is a whole different story).  My lesson started out working on my seat and moved into cues.  As the lesson continued, the focus continued to be on cues and advancing those cues.  It was truly an education experience for me to see how a simple change in my seat or a different cue could result in a closer connection and feel of my horse’s movement.  Additionally, I have been riding in a bitless bridle for almost 3 years now.  Patrick helped me to see that the bitless bridle, decide being a style branded as an automatic release/rebound bridle, is in fact, not releasing.  This is resulting in a constant application of pressure under her jaw.  This constant pressure explains why I always see her throwing her head as she is attempting to relieve the pressure.  I am very eager to continue to work on improving my seat and cues, especially with the responses I was seeing in Cinnamon in just an hour.  I am also motivated to work again on finding the correct bit or bitless bridle to work with Cinnamon as well.
