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."

Success and Goals

Lately I've been doing Transitions with Blaze everyday. and he has been doing fantastic! he now will stay at 1 speed at the trot, unless I ask other wise, and the canter is getting allot better too! we did 1 lap with a very slow canter each way! he still is more prepared to go then he is to whoa, which we're getting there, by lake land he should be just about perfect. I also have taught him when he is laying down to lay his head on me! which is so cute haha. our newer trailer he was scared to go in because he can't turn around in it, but finally he is over that and will go in with no problem, even on a 45 foot line, and will back into it, and his turning when backing by the tail or me just backing is perfect, I don't even have to touch his tail and he will back and turn whatever way I won't him to turn, yay!

and here are a few goals I have

1: lead changes

2: build his neck muscle

3: be able to do finesse better

4: get 3 speeds within a gait bridle less

5: get his sitting longer, and him knowing what I really mean

6: get him to look in the direction he is going, when doing a side pass (he looks the other way and his shoulder leads)

so just a few goals I have, I know not all of that is gonna happen before lakeland, But hopefully a few will, I've also been playing around with shimming because Blaze had dry spots the other day, and now I might need to buy a couple of more shims.

so I've just been playing with allot of stuff, we have been makeing allot of Sucess

well just a quick up date'
