    The Quantum Savvy Experience camps

    Thank you Meredith. I'll have to see if I can appeal to my parents on this one, and get saving myself! I really want to be able to come with Darcy. Fingers crossed If for whatever reason there aren't enough bookings for the Level 3 camp, would it be cancelled and refunded? Or could I just go to another camp instead (like HiM or the Ultimate)?

    The Level 3 if I can afford it. That's where I'm aiming to be next year

    what the??

    I just thought I'd add an observation of mine. Darcy and Khmari are in a dirt yard with plenty of hay in nets overnight to rest my paddocks, and when I go down in the morning to left them out they will go straight to their pee spot and both go. Then they will go graze or do whatever they like (usually rolling and getting dirty). So I think they have learnt to hold it until I come down in the morning, so that they don't have to deal with splashback.

    So close to a purple tick for short range HiM

    Thank you. I'm sure your's will get there too with lots of practice and time
  11. I just got feedback from Meredith today on Darcy and I's first trot attempt of the short range HiM, and its so close now. We just have to improve on the flow, Darcy's self carriage and my rope skills (no using the rope for forward). This was filmed about a week and a half ago, but now its looking about a million times better. Darcy is offering amazing self carriage (his back is close to being as flat as a table), I'm not lifting my rope hand for the offer for trot (Darcy's just going off of my energy and intent) and the general flow is much nicer. We just have to improve in on a smaller circle with the stick on Darcy's back, because I feel like the stick is blocking the raising of Darcy's back, which essentially stops the drive forwards into the trot. I will have experiment with this one a little more. Here are some screenshots and a quick video of how we are looking now IMG_1473.MOV

    Float Loading Focus Play

    That looks like it was a great day

    Rapid Change

    Thats so awesome, I wish I could have 200 acres and heaps of equines. I'll get there one day! I find now that even poop picking isn't a chore because I usually get to watch Darcy and Khmari playing.

    Darcy's Mind/Intent Reading

    I thought about sending Darcy to the left and he did it before I visibly offered it. I feel like he is always reading my mind now!
  15. I haven't posted in over a month (whoops). Darcy and I have been super busy though. He pulled up lame and after 2 vet visits and some x-rays was diagnosed as being calcium deficient. He is now being treated for that, and as part of it he has to have time off from anything major. All we are allowed to do is small amounts of walk groundwork (which we can be quite creative with). So we have ben doing tons of HiM, and have been practicing short range, long range and liberty all at a walk. I have submitted some short range assignments and my second one is awaiting feedback now. I have just been doing it at a walk with focus of Darcy's lateral drift, self carriage and softness throughout. I hope to film the long range and liberty soon just at a walk as they are coming along nicely. Darcy is quite happy with COD's and spirals HiM style, but the lateral drift at long range still needs some work from both of us. Our liberty however is going amazingly! Darcy has made the choice to stay with me and for the past week of doing Liberty nearly every afternoon he hasn't left me once. It feels so great and I can tell how much he wants to connect because after our sessions he walks beside me for a while. Yesterday we were at the Noosa Hinterland practice day and the whole time we just worked with the neck rope, then we did some liberty in the huge grass area of the grounds. He didn't leave me even though there was lots of grass and the draw of other horses, although our circles ended up getting pretty large at times! I can't wait to see where Darcy's next month of walk restrictions takes us as its really getting me to fine-tune myself and my communication with him. Sometimes I think about sending Darcy on a circle and he will start doing it, so I have to be careful about what I consider asking Darcy to do because its like he can read my mind! He happily goes sideways, forward and backwards now with just my intent and body life.
