I did not get to ride today, had to take care of some legal-ish stuff, so the paint horse got a day off. Tomorrow however will be desert day, and the day after that we will go move some cows around at the neighbors.
It was slow last night at work so I ended up tooling around on you tube. This time I was watching more Dennis Reis.
I thought I'd go ahead and share a little of what I was watching. The one thing I enjoy about Dennis is how he talks through the thought process with each move.
This was the first one I watched. Granted there isn't really any ground breaking revelations, but I just enjoy watching him work with this problem horse. I especially like how he really explains the point behind the flag. So many people use it to move their horses instead, of using it to desensitize, which to me seems counter productive.
Here is another.
This one is specifically on the techniques and the thought process behind the round pen work.
There are many more video's but the best ones are the ones on his CD's. I would love love love to go to one of his clinics. Maybe someday.
