Thanks for the welcome. I am so envious of 'bareback and bridleless', definitely a goal of mine, got to keep it there out in front of me as I have a long way to go!! Just got back in from playing with Raffy, and really worked on friendly game, especially when on the pedestal. Yoyoed him on and off, then asked him to come off forwards, rewarded him for what I hope was the slightest try, then backed him off and went off to some moving circle game, which turned into a squeeze game and then back to the pedestal. This time tried it as a sort of squeeze game, and yeah, once on and asked to move forward just walked off!! It was great. Repeated this a few times and the last time he even left his hind legs up while he thought about it. Great fun.

LOL Emily, I don't have any videos or pictures :( Today's ride no one was there to see it, although we had an interesting Liberty session to warm ourselves up. He was a little RB because he was away from his new friends which is interesting because he never acts like that, but I played with the horse that showed up! I did some matching and mirroring which got his attention, then played the catching game when he would leave. He ended up coming back to me at a trot. He offered me some really nice stuff once I helped his confidence....I thought about going Online to fix it but I thought I could give it a shot at Liberty and I was able to do it without going to Online. Our ride went really well, but I noticed that our Sideways Game is broken bridleless so that tells me I haven't done enough prep in my lower level Freestyle, so I'll be working on that.

The catching game is how you go about getting a horse to become interested in you to where HE catches YOU.

On the subject of the catching game I can't really seem to get my horse to want to catch me or even be interested in me for that matter. Any ideas guys?
Sounds great that you were able to have some BB and BL rides Rebecca well done

Shauna: Is the horse in question a LB or RB horsenality?

Emily: I will try to make this as simple as possible lol! Basically the rule is if you have no eyes, lots of pressure....one eye, slight pressure....both eyes, no pressure. So if the horse turns his butt to you, you use a lot of energy to drive him on. If he has one eye on you, you toss your halter at Zone 4...reel it in....toss it at Zone 4....if at any time the horse looks at you with both eyes turn your back and walk away. Then you start making a wide path toward Zone 5....this creates curiosity. But stay out of the kick zone! If the horse turns toward you turn around and walk away. There is much more to it than this, but it kinda gives you an idea.

Hmm, well that makes it interesting. Can you get video? Or get your hands on the L&HB DVDs? I could try to explain what to do but it would be very long....
