2nd real liberty session. What do you do?

This is more a pat on the back for myself than anything else.

Ella and I had our first real go at liberty the other day. Wed had one 15 min session just follow the leader previously.

We got through parellis games 1-5 and she only left once!!!

I do a bit with prin but this is ella's first real go.

Do you play at liberty and what do you do?

Pats on the back from me! Yes, I do most stuff with my horses at liberty, though I often do it in a large yard/small arena, basically so when I do something else - talk to someone, go get gear from the car, pay attention to the dog, etc, there's less chance they'll wander away(it's disconnected elec tape yard, so they can go under it). I don't ride or walk out of the property at liberty though, for safety's sake.

Good for you getting through games 1-5 at liberty! I usually find yo-yo the hardest to do at liberty.

My next liberty challenge with Fargo is to do a fig 8 at a trot, he is pretty solid at the walk and will canter an 8 on line, so I think he is ready to trot at liberty.

One of my mini horses is such an avid jumper that I set up courses and trail obstacles do them with him at liberty, he looks like a dog doing agility.

Prin and I do jumps courses as a warm up.

I'm without a solid yard for a while so I'll have to back off the liberty :(
