Let me preface first:
JP bought a new to me used barrel racing saddle. Sold a saddle bought a new one. SCORE.
Made a special trip out to BFE to pick it up yesterday to have for tonight's Drill Practice.
So I get to barn, stoked, ready to roll, tack up and walk out to the arena and ...............
My jaw drops open.
All the Parelli stuff is still in the arena including the horse trailer. WTF?
Yeah tonight was Parelli/NH/Play date night. BARF...........
needless to say, I didn't get any real work/riding done and just untacked. I wanted a smoke in the worst way I was so irritated. bad................
We even played with the PP Ball. She'll bump it with her head if I say " get it, get it".
She wanted to do every obstacle, she was DYING to get in the trailer, could barely wait her turn.
So I let her go in and come out twice and moved on. I wonder where she thought we were going to go? Not to Gramma's or the Feed Store that's for sure.
So I decide as long as I'm out here, might as well work with Sis and the " sack on a stick from hell" I have zero patience,so Della the BO traded me and she worked with her.
So that was a positive. Craig Cameron said you have to rope break your horse, so as soon as the round pen goes back up I will do that next. I think I might buy his DVD as a reference tool.
It just makes sense she needs to be broke to a rope around her foot and not panic. I am not a PP hater, but nor a kool aid drinker either. I prefer saddle work over walking over tarps and logs.
Next week? COWS....
I think I might die of sheer terror. I'm going to want a smoke then too.... This is tough stuff this no smoking.
