Here we go, me & Cobe ... We are real beginners, had 2 lessons from Josepha (but hardly practised anything
) and mostly we're just fooling around and trying some things ... I read on there the topic Miriam wrote about point to point and I wanted to try that, because I thought he would like it (because you have to do something for a limited time and you know the endpoint) and I was right
He did great! And did more than I expected!
Cobe is a special hore, it would lead me too far to tell everything, but things that are normal with other horses (lunging f.e.) aren't normal with him .. he just didn't do it a while ago .. now he does! But him doing the normal things are already very special to me, so it might seem that I'm overexcited about something someone else finds normal. Sorry for that
This was the very first time I did the point to point .. The goal was to make it clear for him that he had to go from one cone to another, and that it ended there. Had no idea what I would get from him, but I got a lot! He even trotted! He never did that before when I asked .. He does it when I'm driving, like when you're in a lunging-position, but never when I was in front or next to him .. And now he did!
He wasn't very happy
but he did it ... Also the backing-up, he did it so fast!
It was like he was hurrying to get to the cone, as if he really knew what we were doing ... Great horse!
Think that's about it, if there are any questions, don't hesitate to ask
And oh yeah .. he loves my camera .. that's what you see in the beginning
And he loves the cones too! (was the first time he saw them)
And last thing: he's very, very itchy
The good thing about that is that he takes care of his own stretching
