I audited a workshop, Advancing Liberty, with Berin MacFarlane this morning and I have much to think about. Berin introduced us to some key concepts to developing our liberty play with our horses, beginning online and transitioning to liberty play; how to develop the solid foundation that will lead to success at liberty, how to know when it's time to advance a skill (speed, distance, zone). Watching everyone play with their horses this morning, I came to the realization I don't hang in there long enough with Renegade (more on this later), and I tend to introduce new concepts to quickly, before we're solid with the current skill. Sheesh...such a balancing act with two LBE's (me and Renegade), how to keep either of us from getting bored but manage to stick with something long enough to get really good at it!!
I have thoughts to gather and notes to type up; as soon as I'm done I'm going to post them here.
