yup! were almost ready for Lakeland! out trailer is in the process of getting painted. it has new tires on it. and nw brakes. and should be done by monday. then we put the floors in. and well be ready!

I've been Practiceing with Blaze allot. and I think he is ready! we just need to get some things nice and smooth. we can now do a spin without blaze rearing and turning. and yes I taught him to rear and turn, but I want to him to know the difference. in me asking for a rear spin or just a spin. and we got it going to the left. and still playing with going to the right! but well have it in no time.

so anyways here is my new video!

Preparing for Lakeland!

WOW! we Have so much to Get ready!! this is Gonna be ALLOT Harder then I thought it was O.O! I say this because Parelli wants you to Bring allot! ad our Trailer is not big enough....But we might be able to find a bigger trailer by then (Hopefully)

so here is Parelli's Check list

-Riding Clothes - Whatever you plan to ride in - jeans, jodhpurs, boots, long and short sleeve
shirts, etc. CHECK

-Suitable Footwear if you are Riding - This would include shoes with flat soles and a heel.
The Parelli program is very much about safety with horses and this is a simple requirement to
make sure we succeed. CHECK

-Grooming Tools and Supplies - Brushes, Soap, etc. We don’t reward or recommend that you lip your horse especially the muzzle or inside the ears. We also strongly suggest that you clean

Now here is my little Plan to mae this trip really fun
I was talking to my brother last Night and I came up with this neat idea. My trip down there and getting there and practicing Just about EVERYTHING is gonna be on film! (if my brother will film for me) then if that happens I'm gonna make it like a movie so y'all can see EVERYTHING that happened! from when we left, from stopping on the way, to when we gt there, etc etc.

I think it's gonna be fun!
I can't wait!

quick update on Blaze
I played at liberty with him the other day and he was AMAZING!!! he is learning new things everyday!

OK that's all for now

Perfected Sitting!

Today we had to bring Blaze to the Vet for His coggins and health Certificate and shots etc. so when we got there Blaze was real good for the vet, and before That the Blaze kept pawing, so when the vet was done I asked him to do the spanish walk, cause he wanted a treat, so the vet thought Blaze was being snotty, and he was like "wait, did you ask him to do that?" and I said yes, and he was like "oh sorry" and his assitant said what else can he do? and I said he can rear lay down and sit, etc etc. an she said OH can I see him lay down? and I said sure! and when we got Blaze there he was RB wondering what was going on, and by then he was fne. so anyways I got him to lay down and they said COOL! and then when I gothim to sit they were in shock! the vet said Blaze was amazing!!

and later on The vet called woundering were he could find my videos on youtube LOL

On line and Freestyle

Lately I have been playing On line and allot of Freestyle
and Our On line is Fantastic! He'll canter as many laps as I want him to on the 45 foot line (with me standing in place relaxed) but of course I don't ask him ever to canter over 5 laps because I know if I were him I wouldn't want to canter allot of laps. lol. I've also been doing allot of long line driveing, and he is just about perfect at it!! our figure 8 is beautiful!! just like in the L4 patterns figure 8. how Pat barely moves at all, just back and forth. so he has that down pat ;) and been doing allot of circleing game with long lines, and he is Great! will walk trot canter backup. (he'll back up 2 laps!)

and Our freestyle is coming along very nicely! I no longer have to worry about him cantering or trotting to fast! Just trying to get him to really understand my body Language more than my legs. and yesterday I fell off him. and hit the drive way real hard. and got hurt, but I'm in some pain, but i'll heal quick!

just a quick update

Level 4/5 play

Today was Really fun, with Blaze.
I started out on Getting him to jump 1 barrel at the end of the 22 foot line, cause I haven't done much jumping in a while, and he has been going around the barrel when I do ask, so I played with the for a few minutes, and she was Great! started jumping every time I asked him. then I switched to the 45 foot line and Blaze did flying lead changes on a figure 8! which was cool.

and after that I taught Blaze to Trot sideways toward me, and that went very well! he was Great! and we ran around the pasture doing all types of stuff, just playing around with everything.

after that I got Blaze to lay down, and Played extreme Friendly game, and got him to lay all the way down on his side and I stood on him and did Extreme friendly game. and after that he got up and sat! he has never afford to do that so it was cool, and he sat all the way up, finally. before his feet were far out in front, and now the are straight, so I gave him a few treats, and played extreme friendly game, and he didn't get up, and I mounted him while he was sitting! YES another Goal checked :)

so I ended it at that

Then later on I came back and I couldn't resist I played again, and I played with Transitions on line, and he was GREAT! all Low phase 1 and 2, he is really started to Naturally collect him self too! very neat stuff, he is also started to use his HQs, after that we did more UDT and I gave him a bath, well more like just washed him off with the water hose, lol

Tomorrow I'm Gonna play with Flying changes, cause I figured out a few things I was doing wrong, and I'm going to correct them tomorrow and see if it works, I post on how it goes

But until then
Good Night!

the perfect day

The title tells it all, today was the perfect day, 70s out side clear blue sky!
so here we go!

It's been about a month since I've rode Blaze Bridle less and bareback. cause I've been doing so many transitions, and doing more finesse. so today I said well might as well see how he is, so I got on top of the 4 wheeler and asked him to side pass to me, (I didn't have a carrot stick, was just gonna ride him with nothing no savvy string to) anyways. so I got on, and just started walking around the pasture, and it was really cool, because, if I would turn my body to the left he would turn left, and same to the right, then I just thought backwards, and leaned backwards and he backed!!!! Wow!!!

then when I asked him to spin, he did a slow spin!! and when I asked him to move his HQs in a circle he did!!! I was totally amazed! so I asked him to trot a figure 8, and he just started slowly jogging, and OK, he has NEVER done that without speeding up in the trot, so that was HUGE!! those transitions really work! then I asked him to do simple lead changes on the figure 8 and he was perfect, will have those flying lead changes down before you know it!

so after I was done with all that, I thought we should go up to the house (which is across the scary Dam, and we played with his thresholds, (it's scary for him cause the lake is one one side of it, and an almost straight down drop off is on the other side) (don't worry there is a fence) but it was a squeeze game for him, so we went to the other side, and right to the left is a trail that goes deep in the woods down to the creek, and I've never been down there before with him, and he turned and started going down there, and I'm like "OK, I didn't ask for this way, But maybe I should let him go and have a nice lil trail ride" But be careful because I had no carrot stick no savvy string no nothing, but I was gonna trust him, so we start heading down the hill with spider webs hitting my face, (they were up high and me riding him made were they were hitting me) I called him lucky, lol, but out of no were a tree branch fell some were in the woods, and his head went up, but Guess what? He didn't spook! he was like "what was that?" then was over it xD!

so we went to were the creek was, and I wasn't gonna ask him to go in, cause you have to go down this little muddy thing that goes down into it, and he would get stuck, and the sand in the creek would make him get stuck to, so I asked him to turn around, and we trotted on the trail, (a controlled trot) and we went back up the steep hill, back to the pasture next to the house, it was so lovely, I never had to trust him that much, cause were we we're there was no fences, so he could have ran away with me on him, cause there was no way to stop him if he did,

anyways after wards I did some UDT around the house, and he was so cute, I layed on the ground and he came to me and wanted to hang out, and he kept biting my pockets, then trying to kiss me, lol! so after about 30 minutes I went running back across the Dam back up to the pasture, and he didn't follow, then out of no were I hear the loud Winnie, and here he is cantering after me, and he stoped when he got to me and I jumped on him real quick and we went back to the building,

it Most definitely the perfect day, to bad the camera was broke because it would have been one amazing Video!
