Wow, what fun Saturday was with kim and her Mobile Confidence course www.confidenthorse.com!!! I took over 100 hundred pictures, but I tried to post the best ones to give you an idea of what we did for over 3 hours! It was with Kim and her horse Shadow. My barn owner Monica and her horse Fuego, and then me of course with Enzo! Monica and I thought for sure we were gonna die that day. Not only did we have the obstacles, but the MI wind was back again!! Unfortunately, you cannot tell as much in the pictures, but it was windy!!!! So it made for an extreme obstacle day! At first our horses were jumpy, but went curious pretty fast. The added lush grass also helped them all gain confidence in some of the items as well. The horse would eat their way to the item sometimes, LOL. Enzo was not thrilled at all with the flying goose and the stationary turkeys. We had to pass those up the first time around. Later Enzo gained enough confidence to go touch them. By the end, Enzo didn't even mind them! Enzo also wasn't that thrilled at first with the snakes and ducks. Enzo bucked and kicked when the snakes touched his legs! But later Enzo was also fine with them. After I had gone through all the obstacles a few times. I then went back and got more precise on what I wanted. I then asked Enzo to back through some things. I asked Enzo to stop and stand in the water crossing, or just stand on the mattress. I even got as fancy as to ask Enzo to side pass over the standing pool noodles and Enzo did great. I wish I had gotten that on video! But all in all we all had a super day!!! Kim has tons of different courses, this was just one of them! So things are always different! Thanks again kim for the great day!!!
