Zakai: April 15

Zakai | April 14

This week we've been rocking & rolling (& blowing ๐Ÿ˜…) through the foundation groundwork exercises. Zakai has had no issues with Desensitizing to the Lead Rope & Stick & String. He's done well with Yielding the Hindquarters. He's struggled a bit with Yielding the Forequarters & the correct footwork, but it's been improving. Flexing continues to get lighter & softer. We've built upon Lunging Stage 1 (send around & yield HQ to face) with Lunging Stage 2 (quick change of direction & send the opposite direction) & we've just added Sending & Circle Driving.

We've also begun to work through Pillar One of the Three Balance Through Movement Method Pillars. I stumbled upon Celeste & her work back in late January/early February. I joined her Facebook Masterclass (highly recommend) & my eyes have been opened! In the video below, you can see its effect on Zakai at the end of yesterday's session.

Next week, we'll continue to review the past groundwork exercises under saddle & add in a few more exercises.

If all goes well & the weather holds out, I hope to put his first rides on during the last week in April.

I was hoping to be able to make the trip up to Jen's next week; however, I've just received word that she is unavailable April 18-27, so it will likely be the first week of May.


Next week's update will come on Wednesday as my Business Mentorship for Horse Trainers group is holding a Business Mastermind Class near Ponder, TX, next weekend, so I will be gone April 22-25.
