After four years of on and off training, my paint stud Jester has lead change on a vocal. He's so trusting I'm amazed it didn't come along sooner, but I wasn't very consistent with it until the last few months. I'd just been playing around a bit before that

I started by making him change with my seat, as he already had the reining training to change off the leg. All I did is tell him "Change" on the centerline and then ask for it with myleg and seat. Soon he figured it out. Simple training method, but it throws my judges through a loop to hear me talk to him and not see any leg cues. Too bad we aren't showing anymore. Now I need to get going on one of the younger horses

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

My ride went well yesterday. Made it home just before sundown. My mom was getting kinda worried lol. But we went and crossed the highway and into town. I love that my mare is so calm. Nothing bugs her (except maybe the gorgeous paint stallion that we ride by). But 18wheelers, fourwheelers, dogs, weedwackers, lawnmowers, sprinkler systems, 3 year old kids running around, people honking, bikes. None of it bothers her. She even met her first pig yesterday!!!!!!! Didn't even bat an eyelash. But she was wondering why they had food and she didn't lol.

My brag; after over a year of work, Love Story is jumping calmly and smoothly, she has stopped pulling out or refusing, and I am SO proud of her

Every girl wants their own LOVE STORY, I found mine... :)

Not quite as fancy as your horse's vocal cue, but my horse understands the difference between the words slow and whoa. I think it's pretty cool that even when he's a bit on edge and wants to race off you can tell him to "SLOWWWW" and he take a deep breath, let go of any tension and slow his pace. Be you on his back or he's on the lunge.

My brag. My pony is finally in the IDEAL body condition. I was so ill for the first several months of being pregnant my mom took over taking care of our horses and blew them up into whales. Since I've been back up there she's dropped to an ideal weight. Her neck isn't cresty, her butt is round again instead of apple shaped and you can feel her ribs slightly but not see them. She looks amazing for turning 32 this month.

Cougar and Shaddy could use to drop a bit still but they only carry extra weight in their bellies. Greylite gets really cresty and the vet was concerned about her weight so for her to look this good is a blessing.
