Pseudo-Pagosa Springs

Blu is going to spend the next 7 days in the round pen, weather permitting. Today, I put the horses out back and took him out on the 12' line with Mocha Rose. I let him graze for an hour then put him back in the round pen and rode Misty to herd all the horses back up to the front pastures. I offered him water before and after grazing. On the way out, I walked in zone 5 and he had a great sideways away from the pressure of the line on zone 3. Fun stuff.

During this week, I will be the provider of water and social interaction. This is the kind of life Blu will have while he is in Pagosa Springs, so it should be a nice preparatory experience for him.

On another note, during my sessions, I think I want to teach Blu what to do to help me untangle the line.

Misty was great. I gave her a handful of grass and put the halter on. She was so together with me while we gathered up the horses.

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.
