WEEK 20


Wow what a week I've had with Brandy, she has discovered the joys of walking in the bush negotiating all sorts of natural obstacles steep embankments, rocky paths, jumping any log in sight and moving  freely trotting and cantering by my side. In the round pen I have been working on flexing and moving the back end and working on her responses to my cues for halt, back up and moving off into walk trot and slowly developing  canter. She is really responding well to the click training. I did some desensitising with the  Earth ball,the tarp and a bag on a stick. After she realised the ball was cool  I was able to put it on her back. I finished the week two by leaning my weight over her.
