Learning to carry a flag

I am working with Brodie to carry a flag and today i WTC with it... please don't mind the flag- my friends mom's horse ate it and it is the only thing I have to practice with right now. I am going to buy a new one this week.

Do you have a flag holder on your stirrup? It looks like your carrying it on your foot...

Lovely flag
I was doing the same thing yesterday and today.
I got a pretty cool pic of my sister but of course I'm the only one who takes pictures so none of me and Penny :(
(sorry it's kinda blurry)

There is something about riding down the street on a prancing horse that makes you feel like something, even when you ain't a thing. ~ Will Rogers

That was my sister's mare's first time but you can do anything with Indi. She is totally bombproof. Penny FREAKED out at first but at the end of our "lesson" I was galloping around on her back with it :O We were doing it for practice for the drill team we are joining. What are you doing it for?

Oh, my. He looks so terrorized! LOL . Looks like you are doing a great job.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Good job! He looks really calm

he has seen the flag before but never carried it... i know it wasn't a real flag but he was such a good boy. The handing off of the flag was the problem, once i had it he was cool

Anna: i have ran in many rodeos with flags and i would love to have Brodie be sane and capable to do it with me ... next summer is rodeo season so i have some time
