2011 - 2012
NOTE: On Desensitizing
You can over-desensitize a horse if you don’t do it
right, causing problems later on, such as control and safety
direction change is nice...
lifting up the stirrup and slapping it bothered her a bit...which is normal
better... we'll work on this some more, we want her comfortable with this
checking out the trail course in hand...
off the side.. can't get up from over here.. helping her with a foot..
and another step...
there, all the way on the ground bridge...
ok, she can move forward on the bridge now without help...and off nicely
over the logs
Tarp work...she did great on the tarp work! (check that stirrup again...)
making sure she sees her on both sides...
another day - mounting issues
up and down a few times
still a little trouble
figure 8's over the poles
bridling stirrup slaps
flexing for softness
mounting (up and down & she stands good this time)
much better! good girl!
gets off leg pretty well sulls up sometimes
I had to help her cross the bridge, now we'll go do something else and give her mind a break - we'll come back to this
Checking out the first log...
we got the logs down pat....then she sees the bridge coming up again...
up and over....that was a tough one for her earlier, so she did great!
such a good girl! we dismounted and loosened cinch for reward and walked back to barn to untack
she gets attitude when asked to trot, thowing her head, pinning her ears, wringing her tail, and may pop up in the hind end
had her feet trimmed
we've been working on lengthening her trots, she starts off mad about it, then gets scared when she starts moving with her rider on...she is improving
