Misty's Big, Hot Day

would not let me catch her, so I let her into south pasture
came to me and followed me to round pen sideways--I couldn't have gotten much better than that, huh?
lead by tail--wow, that needs attention!
friendly game
stick to me/close circles--rated 3/10
phone calls--I called some people on my cell to take my focus off Misty so she could relax some more.
side ways to and from me--focused on her differentiating between the two cues yoyo style
lead by tail more--was able to use less line support
yoyo--I did this for a long time because she was in "yoyo means circle" mode
circling canter 5 laps was my goal. When she broke gait, I had her change directions. I did reach my goal after about 5 minutes.
followed all the way till saw fence--I have no idea what that means. This is a draft and I am coming back to fill in the blanks after nearly two months.

About Me

My photo
I am a young horsewoman with a million things on my mind. I have been a student of the horse all my life. As a little girl, I had a desire to understand horses on deeper levels. I believed that there was no such thing as a bad horse, and I believed that all horses were beautiful. One might say that I was a naive child, but I guess I don't have an excuse anymore, because I still believe all of that, and Parelli Natural Horsemanship is helping expand on this perspective.

What We Are Currently Playing With
