working with Libby... a short video


Libby's lessons


The snow is only a memory now, and the temperatures are headed for 60 degrees.  It's a perfect day for enjoying my horses.  The part of the film where I'm on Blue leading Libby was only the start of that lesson; I took them out to the point and back twice, later on.  Libby sometimes lays back her ears, and has acted like she wants to bite either Blue's shoulder or my leg.  But I do my "wrong answer" buzzer noise and she straightens right up.

I'm sure that horse people will see me doing things wrong, but I do the best I can.

I took a short ride on Blue, between Libby's lessons.

Looked like you were doing the right things to me. Bending her head back is great exercise I would think. Of course I am not a horse trainer LOL. Helen

Looks to me like you're doing a great job with her.  I am a city girl though....what do I know.  I only know what I watch the local cowboys do around here.  We've got horses around here and it's fun to watch them train the new ones.
Never saw them do the tin can in a bag thing...that was a new one! LOL!
Enjoyed the video alot.
