The boys waiting their turn!
Was a good Monday. I had a riding lesson in the morning and my student, Deb, did great. She continues to make progress. We are talking about a trail ride next week for her lesson so I will let you know how that all turns out.
Worked with Casino yesterday. I rode him during the lesson with Deb. He is still a little stiff with his head and neck but is making much better progress and his stop is getting better and better. We will focus on these two parts of this training this week.
The feed store in TorC is talking about hosting a demo/clinic for us sometime this spring. That would be great. They are in touch with just about everyone in town who is a horse person and having their vote of confidence would be great. One of the employees there is a brother of Clay’s, the fella that had the mustang that I work. Clay called right after he got home to tell him what we had gotten done with the horse and he was pretty excited about that… So we will see where that all goes.
We are still getting ready for the 2 day clinic at Sue’s in the Mimbers Valley coming up next month. If you are interested in be a part of the clinic or you would like to be a rail bird, please let me know so we can get you on the list.. Looks like we have only 3 opening for the group on Saturday and only 4 slots left for private lessons on Sunday.. So think about it and let me know..
Oh, wanted you all to know that I am teaching Car, one of our horses, to lay down. I have never taught a horse to lay down as a trick. I use laying a horse down to show him that I can take away his feet, and this causes them to submit. I usually only lay down horses that just don’t want to get in the program, but I thought it would be fun and people seem to like that kind of thing, so it may give our clinics and demos a little more show. Anyway, I will let you know how that all turns out…
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
