“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.Don’t be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice.And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”- Steve Jobs

Walter teaching.
Pat having a lesson for Walter.
Linda innan sin lektion med Walter Zettl.
Patrik om Humenalitys.

It has been a week with a lot of good information. Last week I did the 1 star course so this week the externs that did the 1 star joined the 2 star course. We have watched lessons with Walter Zettl, hade lessons with Linda and Patrik Handly they talked about the horsenality/ humenality rapport and diffrent approaches to diffrent personalitys very inspiering and Patrik was fun to listen to. We also hade a lesson with Pat and two with Mark (Parelli's VD) and today we ended the week with a super fun saddle demo with Tina and Letitia from Parelli saddles.
I have hade some time for horsemanship, in the lessons with Berin we have played with the 45" rope trailer loading from a longer distance, he talked about how we want the horse to seek the trailor and Buddy did a good job with that and we also did traveling circles using a lot of the 45" rope Buddy hade a good canter. I have been riding him and did 2 carrot stick riding. I went very well, he responded good to my aids. We did follow the rail walk - trot - back up transitions and started to introduce the Questionbox at the walk with 2 sticks at first. I have also figured out how to open a gate. The inpulsion is getting better, I have been more effective in my phases and I can se a big difference. The transitions is just a couple of steps and then I ask him to slow down, I really need to get to his brain and I am getting there slowly, slowly...Fun, fun
