I started out with Parelli and really didn't think it was doing much. When I cam on here I heard about Clinton Anderson. I heard very few bad things about him so I bought his book of exercises and really liked it. I find it to make way more sense then the Parelli program, but I have a few questions I am not sure about.
1. When I am doing the hula hoop game, if I ask my mare to come into me she will once I tighten up the lead rope. When she get there she always turns her head to the side and it seems like she is trying to avoid me. This happens in other exercises too. I don't know if this is important or not so I figured I'd find out:)
2. We are currently up to the backing exercises. She will back up in all the exercises but NEVER with energy. She will let me run the stick into her a bunch of times and just keep barley going. What should I do when she doesn't give me energy in her backing??
Thanks so much for your help. It is greatly appreciated.
