Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
Spent the weekend with my Weimaraner friend, Rosemary, (and about a thousand other people!) at a Chris Cox Horsemanship seminar this past weekend. Thank goodness the arena was air-conditioned as it was 100 degrees outside!
While my TWH, Frosty, is just wonderful, his rider is not so! Learned a lot and got fired up to work with Frosty more often on specific things which will make us more of a team.
He's a good handler's horse and has a terrific slow gait, but need to teach him to go into a canter with signals rather than fast-walking him into it. His fast walk is not very comfortable, but we use it very seldom as his best gait is slow and it's just right for the gallery.
Here's a photo taken at last year's Irish Setter national field trial in Booneville, Arkansas.
Not sure where this "blog" is going to take me - don't know how often I'll add to it but maybe it will keep me on track with Frosty's training.
