In the last 2 weeks I have been playing with a "Can You" I saw John Baar give Jason Zulli on a recent episode of The Horseman's Apprentice. "Can You" do all that while just holding the popper at the end of your 22' line?
So I tried playing with Figure 8's with Dove while just holding the popper. Talk about a fun challenge! I think Dove enjoyed it even more than I did. Spice liked it too but Cherokee had a hard time with the extra distance. So we'll gradually increase it until he too can do a Figure 8 while I only hold the popper.
Here's a short example of this "Can You" with my mare Spice.
This of course caused me to think of more "Can You's" for my horses & I to try next week. Pat Parelli is famous for some really creative ones. I'll be reviewing the Savvy Vault for sure!
So my friends I put the challenge to you too. "Can You" hold only the popper and do a Figure 8 around a cone or barrel or other obstacle?
And then how about you come up with another "Can You" challenge for us to try? I can't wait to hear from you!
