11th, August, 2008 Clinics

The day long clinics are proving to be great fun. We can work with from three to six horses (once seven!) with group and one to one slots throughout the day. They're pretty informal so for example yesterday we covered groundwork and de-sensitisation techniques and also had time to take Bailey for his first long-line out on the lanes; for safety reasons we use dual controls at first. Even lunchtime is full of horse-talk! When I get home I usually need to lie down in a darkened room for a while because I'm shattered.
