Hello Everyone, well as some of you may know I have recently decided to take the Parelli route. I feel as though me and my horse have really drifted and are not having a good relationship with one another. SO, in an attempt to bring me and my horse Nana back together, I have chosen to test drive the "7 games" that Parelli offers.
I will post Journals on each days work, and through those journals I will ask questions and I hope maybe you guys can help me on my way.
So lets begin!
Day 1 (February 24, 2009)
- Today was an AMAZING DAY!!! I did Friendly, Porcupine, and driving game and nana was attentive, having fun, and gain some respect for me. I was not perfect on doing the methods but I think she really got what I was trying to show her. At the end of the session, she even followed me around (without a halter), lol but only for alittle while.. then she kind went on her way.
Day 2 (February 27, 2009)
- Today was not as much progress as I would have liked, but we did make some leaps. I am continued to work on the first 3 of the games and I think she is now really starting to catch on. However, she seemed bored and distracted easily. One big leap that I think I am having with her is that, I think she is becoming less and less buddy sour... which is definitely a good thing!
I tried to switch up the games today, and I even introduced her to the Circling game.. but she just seemed bored... should I be worried or should I just keep tryin to mix it up a bit?
