Groundwork with Ollie

Yesterday I spent some time doing groundwork with Ollie. Today I am doing more riding work and because Ollie and I graduated the Fundamentals level of Clinton Anderson (yay! kudos to me!!) we are now doing Intermediate groundwork and are close to being in Intermediate for the riding portion. Here are some pictures for y'all to enjoy. :)

(Note: I only focused on Fundamentals yesterday, and my sister came out at the last minute, so you didn't get to see all of the exercises I did with him, just a few, but I thought you would like pictures anyway!!)

Backing Up-Stage 2-Fundamentals level.

Lunging For Respect Stage 2-Fundamentals Level (using forequarters to turn instead of disengaging hindquarters and then turning a different direction).

Then I did some work with Ollie at Liberty.
