Spirithorse .... Yes i am serious about the program and no im not asking for more advance things! and No its not me who shes afraid of its the whip which guess what! I can not crack the whip with out her moving, she just grazes. In the begining the whip use to be used sooo much on her she never knew what to think the second you picked it up, so please dont tell me its me who shes afraid of.
This weekend went sooooooooo well, I could do is smile and tell her how good she was! here the progress with our games!!
Friendly game-- I can crack the whip wave it around her and theres only maybe once for a short time she tenses up, I can throw the lead rope all around her she doesn't care.
Porcipine game--she moves her hind at stage 1 sometimes when i just look! I can back her up by her chest at stage 1, I can back her up by the nose at stage 1 or 2
her front, her left side is at stage 2 and her right is pretty much at stage 3 or 4. but shes gotten better
Driving game-- I can drive her hind[both sides] at stage 2 barely ever but sometimes stage 3. The front end she is completely confused about, but slowly getting better :) I can drive her back wards at stage 1 or 2!
the yo yo game!!
she is finally starting to get the concept of the yo yo game! its at stage 3 once or twice I got her to take a step backk at stage 2
Im veryy proud of her shes gotten so so so much better and listen to this!! Remember how I always said when we were out in the feild shes bolt and everything else, well shes gotten soo good at leading with me and I was accually working her in the arena today and part of the fence is down cause of the snow but 3 horses came in and after a while galloped out and i was thinking oo !@#$ shes gonna take off but to my suprise she just looked and started grazing!! omg I was sooo relieved! I cantered her over some jumps in hand a few times she decided to get full of her self and gallop over them lol and once she landed she just bucked cause she was just so full of it and so playful! and after she was done sideways bucking and calmly walked back to me it was soo much fun! I have a few clips that im gonna make into a video of some sort
I think thats all....
