SunbirdSunbird2017-11-23Teaching Birdy to rein back/give in to pressure. She knows this cue already, but I've taught it to her by standing in front for her and asking her to step away from me.
Birdy has a resentment toward pressure and tends to either lean into it or to balk if she feels pressure. For this reason I've taught her the basics without using any pressure. Now that she knows them by voice cue it's easier for her to learn them when pressure is applied, and in this way I can use less pressure for a shorter time which keeps her from shutting down.
Her go to trick when she's uncertain is "leg" (lifting a front leg) so here you see when I initially apply pressure she's not certain what to do and gives me that. I just ignore it and keep asking her to go back. When she gives me that I stop and reward. The second time I asked I hardy needed to apply any pressure to get her to move backward into it, and in so doing she gets a double reward - release of pressure and a carrot! Teaching her this has many benefits. She'll eventually be able to be tied up without panicking when feeling the lead rope tighten, and will also be the foundation of teaching her to ride with a neck rope.

This image was an audience favorite at a recent show, when I put it together I remember thinking it reminded me of an ad you might see for a fragrance.. If she's performing in your town, get off your phone and go see her! horsestallionburlesquebeautyepicwesterncloudswhisperer

Immer wieder aufs Neue wird mir bewusst wie gleich doch alle Individuen sind, egal ob Mensch, Pferd oder Hund 🧒🏽👦🏽🧑🏼👱🏾♀️🐴🐶. Alle wollen gefallen und suchen nach der positiven Bestätigung! Negatives bringt niemanden weiter, im Gegenteil 🙈 Positives hilft sich auf dieses zu fokussieren und die Stärken eines jeden zu unterstützen. Wenn ich mich selbst frage, was mich motiviert, dann ist es ganz klar das Lob, das Positive! Meine Ziele für das Wochenende: die Stärken meiner pferde ganz bewusst wahrzunehmen und sie darin zu fördern! Beim Benji nehme ich mir vor ihn ein wenig mehr bernersennenhund sein zu lassen 🐶💕 mit all seinem chilligen Getrödel. Klakis Stärke ist seine positive Art gegenüber Menschen und Tieren. Ich werde mich einfach anstecken lassen ❤️! Gantis Stärke ist der wahnsinnige Arbeitswille und die schnelle Auffassungsgabe ❤️ deshalb werden wir ein wenig am Spanischen Schritt weiterarbeiten... Einen schönen Start ins Wochenende 🦄🦄🦄💜💜💜▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ pferdpferdemädchenpferdeliebehorsehorseshorsesofinstagramhorsesofigicelandichorsehorsegirlhorseaddicthorseloverequestrianequestrianlifehorseblogponyinstaponyinstapferdinstahorseridingridershttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/23823427_1521423487933575_6294430904802607104_n.jpg2017-11-23

JullaeJullae2017-11-23A Journey to Uphill
“Aapka ghar kaha hai?" I asked this man which translated to where is your home to initiate my conversation on the long journey to uphill.
To which he replied that he is a native of the place but would make home to any place where the horse can give him an earning. I asked him if he migrates to different places since I was curious now about his living now. He said typically no, he doesn’t but sometimes when the tourism is at its lowest, he does go to the city with his horse which he proudly calls, Masti which means fun.
I asked him if Masti earned him enough to survive? He said yes it does but he immediately adds that his needs aren’t much.
“How many members are you in the family”, I asked.
“Five! Me, my wife, two sons and one daughter”.
“How much you typically make”, I asked.
“Around 2000 - 2500 rupees in a beautiful day with God's blessings”, he continued, “else it can be as low as 500 rupees.”
“Is that enough?”, I asked counting my expenses. "To the world, I do not earn, I am a brat spending on a vacation with my dad’s money."
“Cut your cloth according to the cloth (jitni chadar ho utna pair failayen). I know there is a civilization that doesn’t care about my growth but then I am thankful. My desires are limited due to that ignorance”, he replies and then shouts “run Masti!”.
I smile to myself on my selfishness on how sometimes I bargain with people who are already having a hard time to exist.
