This past weekend, we spent over at a cowhorse clinic with Greg Coffin. He shows lots of snaffle bitter, does roping, ranchriding, cowhorse, cutting, and lots of colt starting. He has tons of ideas for solving problems to get your horse where you want it to be.
We started Saturday with some basic loping circles, getting our horses soft and stopping. Razz was having problems racing when we loped, so we went back to the trot and got her softening really nice! I had been working on it, but my timing was off, so that really helped a lot to have someone talk me through it.
We worked on rollbacks and turnarounds too, I need to do more work on that, but after getting her shoulder to move over better its getting there.
We moved to the flag and Razz was drifting a little but I always was able to get her back to the flag and we did some of her best turns yet.
Then the buffalos, Razz was awesome again, she even kept the buffalo pushed against the wall when they tried to leave and turn. So much more fun when I know how to totally control her shoulders. Razz actually was watching the buffalo as well, when they turned and left, she was right with them, she didn't stop with them, but I think that will come.
Jardi rode Kali (and Katie and Tangle) and Kali was awesome, especially on the buffalos! I think even Jardi was impressed with her. She was really watching and turning with them and stopping, I can't wait till I get to do all that fun stuff with her!
