I've been seeing a bunch of goals posts on other blogs so I've decided to do my own. I have two goals for March: 1) teach Coriander the canter cue and 2) get a solid whoa and go with Gwen under saddle. Should be doable, right?
|I was documenting his hooves for my records, thus the board.|
I'm figuring what I need to do is throw him on the lunge line and get a really solid voice cue for it. Then, when I'm riding him, I can teach him to associate the leg and seat cue with the voice cue and, Viola!, canter cue complete (Except for the leads. Details, details.). Does this sound like a good plan?
Getting a whoa and go with Gwen is going to be much easier in comparison, I just need a safe place to do it. I'm planning on riding her on the pasture but that's dependent on the footing in the pasture, and right now it's crap. Melt snow, melt! Dang it!
I'm SO ready for spring!
