Just wanted to share an experience from a recent horsemanship club gathering. Had a group of new horse folks and new horses working who needed to get some round pen skills tightened up (like we all do from time to time). Since I was the poor monkey who volunteered to lead this experience I asked everyone to lead there horses from the trailers to the round pen. It was illuminating to say the least. Lots of pushy horses and horses that didn't have a lot of awareness of their human. So the Leading Exercise was experienced by the group! Certainly made a difference in the focus and attitude of the horses and the humans! Got a note a few days later from one of the new folks thanking me for sharing Scott's approach to the Leading Exercise. It made a real difference to her and her horse. That makes a soul feel good.
Over all the round pen session was fun and educational. Good times!
Thanks for sharing these exercises with us Scott and Grace!
Have a great week!
