Maybe that's a new career for me. Tia had me go out and try to video some of her remaining horse stuff for her level 3 assessment. It was fairly windy and we weren't sure it would work, but we decided to give it a try.

First she made me come to the barn, put down the camera and headphones, and she wanted my opinion on Cowboy. He's our 6th horse, a gelding that a friend owns, but has struggled to work with. So Tia agreed to take him for 6 months and try to work with him. Not sure how she'll fit that in, but she wants to try.

So we got Zarah out and Tia ran her around, trying to work through things. It seemed to be going good, but one of the tasks is a 3ft jump, and Zarah did not want to clear the jump that's been set up in the front yard for a few months. We even moved it to a flatter spot, but the ground is slippery and damp as the snow melts, so we eventually gave up.

She did go in the round pen and shoot two more things, which we hope move her forward. I pulled off the video and when Tia comes in, we'll see if it's good enough. Right now I need to thaw out my hands and feet a bit.

In any case, I'm sure Tia will have her own take on the day on her blog.
