"Look back at our struggle for freedom,

Trace our present day's strength to it's source;

And you'll find that man's pathway to glory

Is strewn with the bones of the horse."

How Interesting!!!

Today I played with Spirit trying to get him on a Tire filled with dirt. so he kept stepping over it trying his best not to try. so I got a couple of try es. so I but the lead rope around his leg and asked him to step up and he did! so he got off and started backing away. and Blaze was watching the whole time! so he came down the hill looked at me and spirit and got on the tire like this is how you do it LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I dropped my mouth!!!!! unbelievable I mean Really!!!! a LBI coming to you when you didn't ask and not even playing with him and gets on the tire??????????? someone was Jealous!!!

so I said well I guess I'll play with you since you offord. and man he was Happy!!!! so I got on him with just a halter and 12 foot line made them into 2 reins. and did some simple stuff trying to get my balance better at the trot canter bareback. and so I started doing simple leads in a figure 8 and I got him to do 2 Flying lead changes WOW!!!!!!!!!!! HE OFFERD!!!!!!!!!!!!! so I said OK OK this is good!!!! so I started doing side passes walk was really good!! and what was so cool is that he was offering a soft feel this was amazing. so I started doing a side pass at the trot going from right to left etc. and what was so cool about that was he has such a fast trot ALL THE TIME and his trot was very slow and very balanced which was really cool.

and here we go the canter he has a fast canter and in the SS it shows swinging the shoulders and he did that for me! got him to side pass at the canter to the right and left which he hates anything on his Left side being done. so I got the 12 foot line off while I was on his back and I put it around his leg and he layed down!!!!!!!!!!! I know he's done it before but not so easy! so I got off and sat there a few minuets and I pushed him all the way down and we both lay ed all the way down and that was really neat he was happy he offered everything and I didn't have to force anything on him ,

so I guess in the end when it's his Idea to play he will be more happy!
