"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."

Christmas crazy!

Lately Things have been quite crazy. with Christmas coming up, and I still haven't got no Christmas shopping done for anyone! "eeeep!" and It has rained everyday for the past week, so I haven't gotten to play at all (Feeling like I'm going insane Because I haven't played for that long.) but any who when it drys I will be filming my level 4 Online and Freestyle, I have went over the self assessment list and we can do everything on them, also we can do everything on Finesse list but 2 things (side pass and looking the direction he's going. and flying lead changes.) but with everything else, we are good. I have figured out how to teach blaze flying lead changes, so I will be teaching him when it gets dryed up out side

also I am so excited to get Mirka's Pitts, dvd on spinning, and I will be getting a Parelli confidence snaffle for Christmas and I can't wait to see how Blaze likes it.

I have been learning lots about finesse lately, and I figured out a few things that need to change with Blaze
here are some pictures of blaze "collected"

OK head "tucked" in not using his back

and this is how he should look

so I have to play with blaze using his body more, and I've been watching on the savvy club allot about finesse and I'm starting to understand what I need to do, so I'm Gonna play around with it and see how it goes and I'll let y'all know and see pictures when we progress more to show the difference.

anyways I've gotta go!

I have been teaching blaze all types of new stuff lately, I have taught him to lay down without me picking up his leg, and he will lay down from under saddle too, I've been playing with flying lead changes over a pole and he is doing great with that, I want to refine it more before I try without the pole. our zone 5 driving is amazing! he will do finesse with me in zone 5, at liberty in the middle of the pasture he will back 1 lap around me, each way. Our finesse in general is Great! he will do haunches in the right way! (still refining it tho) we're playing with passage right now and he is doing great!

here are a few goals I have for us.

1: Flying lead changes without a pole

2: passage

3: side pass (with blaze looking the way he is going) walk/trot/canter


Lately I have just been advancing Angel's online, because it's been so wet, (safer) and she is doing really well. I've been teaching her to lay down (almost there) :) and once she does it I'm Gonna start doing stuff that Honza does with 2 horses (like getting one t jump over the other while it's laying down)


Hope is Officially a Super Learner! in less then a month she is in Level 3 with allot of things, she will canter 2 laps trot as many as I want her too, since she us a LBE it's hard to get her to slow down! haha, she will jump anything I ask her too and will bow. and we can play stick to me a liberty, and Online she will stick to me at the canter

well just a quick update
