1st November, 2010 Day day

On the final day of the course we played the fishing game where students see how easily they can put a headcollar on their pony whilst it is in the big pen with all the others. We also had a theory session where we discussed timing, intent, energy, the value of mentoring, rules for herding and the use of various bits of kit. It was agreed that the feather dusters and the furry hoola-hoops were very valuable indeed (perhaps we should start selling them!). With certificates given out and various presents for the tutors, we had a relaxed afternoon working with the ponies before saying our farewells. We will hopefully be visiting Xanthe in Mallorca, receiving a visit from Joy and Chester will be going home to Kay.
