First of all, it is ENTIRELY unfair that you have this really good resource at your disposal (CA coast with sand to ride on, HILLS, Round pen down and out of the way so no one can watch you fall off.. oh wait.. you did that video.. LOL and so forth).

Second of all it is also entirely unfair you have never asked me to be your partner and train horses with you! HARRUMPH!!!

OK.. now that the chastizing is over I really like your idea. I like watching your videos because you put it all out there. I like the entire idea and there is nothing at all wrong with being a horse geek. Like that WAY better than someone tied hand and foot to Technology!

I like your vids, too, but I don't like the radio sound on. I love music , dont' get me wrong, but it just doesnt add anything to me, and in fact kind of detracts because it doesn't "go with" what is going on at the moment.
I'd rather hear your thought process, like if you had a mike on your shirt and you were talking softly about what you were doing and why. That is really helpful to understanding and learning.

Episode II: Herd-Boundness Cure

Intro: This time I went with live audio and my good friend and chronicler (whom I will give due credit if he so desires) was able to come along and film it. His camera work is always superior. The audio was recorded live on a separate device and is only slightly off as the raw footage didn't transfer perfectly to my laptop. If anyone knows of a rock-solid, easy no-frills video editor for Windows (even if it's not free), let me know. I'm in the market for one. XD

I'm finding out that talking to a camera is an entirely separate skill that takes awhile to get the hang of.

Without further adieu, here is myself and Ginger working on 'curing' her herd-boundness.

Some thoughts on curing herd-boundness:

1. When the horse gets busy, I get busier.
2. When she gets quiet, I get quieter.
3. Allowing her to express her natural curiosity helps her to gain confidence and learn responsibility for me (the rider). However, I don't want her to shut me out and run blindly back to the other horses either. So there is a line.
4. If she won't stand, it's all good. I can channel that excess energy and use it to improve on our maneuvers (start, stop, turn around, etc).
5. If she will stand, it's all good. My idea has become her idea.

I enjoyed the video. And the mic definitely helps you to convey what your trying to teach the horse and us so that we can learn from you . I know from personal experience talking to a camera isn't something you learn immediately it takes a lot of practice and it can feel a little akward but I think you did a great job and the more you do it the easier it will become.
