the weather has been less than pleasant through out August to say the least, hence no blog post as nothing was really achieved!

How does another month slip past so quickly  :o
What did we accomplish in June: ~ 2 play days which included braving the cold &
- working on the longer lines with the 22' around the neck
- a trail walk in hand away from and out of sight of the other horses with no calling out by me or Bailey ^_^
- riding and finding the centre on a very st...

My plan to finish L2 with Bailey - thanks Mel for your input  :smartass: scary as it is now April is over  :eek:

March - saw another go at the assignment - not quite what I'd planned, but we are still moving forward (in more ways than one at times...and the odd sneaky steps by Bailey  :blush: ) and eventually a Blue Tick for our 1st L2 assignment - yey  :smartass:

Just like taking the dogs for a walk along the beach...

Bailey - L1 and 2 at Ballarat Weekend with Mel

Posted by 2legsue, 16 June 2012 · 485 views

We had a fascinating weekend at a new venue 'Unicorn Park' near Ballarat on the long weekend in June - what were we thinking weather wise :0)

L1 was the ridden stuff in the mornings to build my confidence and get some eyes and feedback on our 'bumpy' canter transtions...hmm, a work in progress for self to believe he can and will do as I ask...

Another mind filling weekend with Mel at Burong near Winchelsea -_-
We worked on improving so many 'simple' things - the send, start with 2 eyes facing me at least a stick length away and with 'feel' on the rope (hand following foot), send with contact around me, not through my personal space! Practice when doing trail walk...

Saturday was about establishing a 'comfort spot'... for both of us!... with a pattern of...
