Jazzy- she is a nice looking girl... good luck with everything!!!

As far as footwear- I usually always wear boots because I don't want to get my "street" shoes dirty. However I have still gotten hurt while wearing boots. My horse once stepped on my foot (I had western style riding boots on) and slightly turned- my middle toe nail poped right off!!! NO LIE. So what Im trying to say is just because you are wearing boots doesnt mean you wont get hurt.


It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.

She's drop dead gorgeous and that's coming from a QH girl.....LOL

I know you didn't want a critique but I just have to say this.......

I just loved how you were so calm and if she didn't get it at first you let her keep circling and tried on the next pass. That's always been my motto for teaching them to lunge, there's always another circle. Looking forward to seeing some more video's.

thanks everyone :)

I can't remember who made the comment about the mods but IM a mod lol ;)

It seems there are a lot of closer flip floppers around lol lets unite

G & k's mom - thanks for the comments. Im in no rush. If I get all uptight and worried when she doesnt do what I ask then she will get uptight too. I don't expect her to get it straight away so why should I complain when she doesnt ;)

Hehehe nice to know she's caught the eye of a qh person ;)

Madame Jazzy you use a "shorter rope for more control over the situation" but what are you going to do when she starts pulling and your fliflops come off? And no gloves? You are one brave soul.

by more control I mean if I put her on a long lunge rope when she doesnt know what to do it is much easier for her to take off, turn around as she feels the need etc etc if my flip flops come off they come off.

Brave? Maybe...either that or just comfy with my way ;) thanks for the concern though :)

Having said that I just want to add that even though im comfy im not careless :)
