I just finished a lesson with Can Do and she did great. Why did she do great? That is because I just finished watching the new savvy club DVD and I had a BFO. I know I'm supposed to do the patterns, and I do, but the DVD put it in a different perspective for me. I was always worried about boring my horse. According to Pat, you have to do it more than I realized. I did as Pat said and put different patterns together, mixing them all up and she was on! Don't think I bored her at all. I thought I was doing them enough, but I wasn't even scratching the surface. Before we rode I played the circling game on a 12' line and I made her walk, which is very difficult for her to do. It took about 10 laps of corrections both ways until she got it. I then disengaged her and it was game over. That my dear was progress! Even if it was a baby step.
