Please don't respond if you are not following the CA method because I am really trying to stick with it and follow it step by step.
I have some questions though:
1) the (not sure the name) sending exercise where you send the horse by pointing, then you yield the hindquarters to go in the other direction while standing about 4 feet away to a fence... When I do this my colt yields once the tail gets past my belly, but he ends up level with me (facing the direction I want him to go now), instead of in the line of the path he needs to move, so he has to angle in past me to continue to my other side.... so if he's yielding, how do I keep him where I want him?
2) if my horse gets rushy, and "hot", I continue the sending and yielding until he is calm responsive and relaxed right?
I'm sure I will think of more later. Thanks :)
