You forgot the 300 mph sideways spook.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

Ah, the Arabian Sideways Truffle Shuffle.

Excellent maneuver for dodging the air gnomes!

Arabian has been 'upgraded' with a masochist feature. Have been doing some Clinton Anderson groundwork, applying only enough pressure to get the job done, escalating only when the wrong or no response comes.

The arab apparently likes being beat with the stick. When trying to go do the exercises moving his feet to the right, he will turn and face to the left, close his eyes and walk INTO the beating that comes from the stick. Moves to the left wonderfully! Blaming the internet for this. He obviously learned about the interwebs then found the websites of adult orientation.

Yes, I ride an Arab. Not dish faced. He is still a bit green. I started him about seventeen months ago. He's a real cool dude. I trail ride him and he handles rough mountainous going, bogs, and he swims rivers no sweat! Doesn't fizz! Handles big parades.

I started him with Clinton Andersons colt starting DVD set and it worked a treat. He used to shy and leap away like a shot out of a gun but with the CA training, moving his feet, circling etc he now shies in place! Silly thing shies at my big white Mareema dog and he sees him all the time. It's only when he is out by himself. The other day when the dog meandered out of the trees on the trail Follyfoot sat back on his arse and spread his front legs so wide he looked like a giraffe about to eat grass!! We are still establishing confidence and leadership, so that will come right. He's a great walker and doesn't jig. He is beautiful liver chestnut and I love him to bits. He doesn't buck, bite, kick, bolt, rear, and at 62years that's important to me!
