I've been thinking about this allot for the past few days. I was talking to Fran and trying to figure out how me and blaze could get even closer. and she said are you doing it for the horse? or trying to change him? oh wow! she got me good. I said well trying to change him. so I've been thinking or ways to STOP THINKING OF THE TASK!!!!! AND HAVE FUN!!!! and that is real hard for me to do. so yesterday morning I got up and be for we left for work I played with him. and I said to my self no matter what happens go slow and be friendly.so I was just doing some stuff. lead by the lip. ear. legs. and stick to me. and that went very good. and we were in the round pen and I said OK how bout a circle and I asked him to go and guess what? he started doing a small circle around me and I didn't even ask! and I asked for the canter and he did a small canter around me! I said WOW! I couldn't believe it. I've asked be for and he said not gonna happen. but when I didn't care he did! and I didn't have to nag at all! he was like yes ma'am! I finally understand that when it's NOT about the task and you just go out to have fun your horse will offer more! and now I trying to STOP caring so much if things don't go right. just smile and don't get mad move on or just go slow and be friendly
Until next time
Keep it Natural!
