Bub's Makes Me Proud!


Well all this ground work has paid off! Today we were talking to the neigbours (who own a horse) and their dog was going off its nut barking at Chinga, running around mental and whatever else. Chinga stood there and looked at it "Hmmm what the hell are you doing?"

Then the dog came up to him and sniffed him and Chinga stuck his nose down and sniffed the dog. It was the cutest thing and he loved it. He was with dogs at his old owners place but they didn't bark or run around mental. So all our ground work with the tarp and different objects has paid off!

That's fabulous!

Today was a good day for my boy too; I took him out groomed him, then took him for a walk so he could graze behind the farm, and decided to hop on, and let him keep grazing. After a good while I asked him to lift his head and start moving foward, and he did so willingly and calmly. Danni walked the entire way up the front of the property and down the lane with head down in a relaxed manner, and didn't once try to rush back to the pasture. I was sooooooo proud of him, because this is something we have worked on since I've gotten him; I'm hoping we get more and more of the 'relaxed calm' rides from here on out!

Why would working with a tarp help with dogs? I don't get it.

I shake the tarp suddenly and shake it on top of him. Throw it in the air. So it helped him get used to sudden things.

tonight for me was very interesting. Pumpkin decided to throw a hissy fit when i went to put his rug on. he tried to kick, got his food taken off him and a good stern slap and a nicly said NO!! when his food was out of the paddock, he quickly realised that kicking people wasn't a good idea!!

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky
