A friend gave Kyra to me in 2009. I kept a training journal and a year later I started this blog to keep up with our training results. Here is a translation of the original blog I posted in 2010. It is a summary of the first three weeks we were together. I used clicker training to train Kyra.
In 23 training sessions we achieved:
– I can approach Kyra in her stall and in the pasture
– I can tie her down without her panicking
– I can almost clean all her feet
– I can deworm her
– I can take care of the wound on her leg
– I can lead her over the premises
– I can brush her mane and tail
– I can touch her all over
– I can safely lead her through a gate/narrow space/stall without Kyra running or jumping through the entrance
– Made a start with yielding her hind quarters
– She is not solitary-minded: now she likes everybody
For me it is so much fun to reread this, six years later! Do you keep a training journal? Tell me what you like best about it.
In the next blog I will tell you about my experience of making training plans and keeping a training journal.
