training 2
closer or stay the same distance and get a little louder. So when Dixie Stands still and the noise or whatever stops, she learns the when she doesn’t run away but stands still it stops! So I hope that might help some. Lol sounds like Dixie’s pretty good at the wiggle-wave-whack thing! Sapphires not. Lol I guess I should work on it! Ok now in answer to your question. Does Sapphire keep her respectful distance when working with her. Or does she stay close to me. (that’s about right aint it??) ok well it depends. Like if I just got down working with Sapphire (lunging for respect, keeping 2 eyes, yielding the hindquarters) she
will kinda walk at a respectful distance. Not like really far away. I mean pretty close to me yet. But she stays respectful, and doesn’t try to push me around. But if I havent worked with her. Sometimes she does walk a little to close, a couple times she has got shovey and iv had to remind her with the handy stick and a quick yield the hind quarters so that she will stay respectful. The biggest thing that I work on with sapphire. Is keeping he 2 eyes. I was working with Sapphire before the show, and my mom was like what in the world are you doing?? See I will take my handy stick, put quite a bit of slack in the rope, put on an aggressive body language, then I will go towards her back end (kinda like im gonna bit her NOL) then I will give her a warning with the handy stick and if she doesn’t yeild her hind quarters within the second she gets a “little reminder” to speed up lol (yes a whack) and after I do that about 2ce on each side then I can just walk around her and she will always face me! Its actually REALLY fun! Cauz I will keep switching directions to see if Sapphire is still paying attention! You should try that with Dixie! Well keep up the good work!!. So when did you actually start working with Dixie with the Clinton Anderson methods??? Well got to run! You know what! When you start ridding Dixie that’s when all this ground work REALLY pays off. SERIOUSLY. Lol everyone is just shoked that Sapphire has never tried to buck.! Im sure it will be the same way with you!! NOL I guess when people think of breaking or even training horses to ride! Theres ALWAYS gonna be bucking! Lol not so with us hu??? And your even sitting on dix already! Im sure your proud!! ♥ ♥ &hearts ♥ ♥ voted
