Desensitizing to the rope
Tanka - I went out and worked with Tanka for maybe 1/2 an hour. I had him walk, trot and canter in both directions with whoa and turns.
I desensitized to the rope going over his back and I got his feet moving. He would get a little too close and I would back him up. He was a bit wilder with the feet moving but I think it was a good thing to do. I also used the rope to turn fore, turn aft. Just like in the sacking out video from Carson James.
Hopefully, if I keep this up and I keep working on my timing. He will be a calmer horse with things that move in no time at all.
I'm going to keep working at this.
