I had a fun ride on Taurus for his first Bridle-less ride! We took the pattern from Liberty with the ball and had some fun riding!
Still on cloud 9 after an incredibly amazing lesson with Kathy Baar last night! She's helping me make some many breakthroughs with my mare- emotionally and physically! Thank you!! :-)
"Hi Sarah, in some ways this is..." on Sarah Hoppel's post on Raising The Baar's wall.
Hey sorry to bother you with more questions but I am having some difficulties since I got back from your clinic. I have tried to really pay even more attention to Khan's horsenality and now that I have been working with him more and more I have no idea what he is. He will go from dominant throwing his head finding other things more important to super reactive and spooky. I also noticed that I have never really been super connected to him. He will do what he is suppose to do but he doesn't seem like he truly wants to do it. I try to take time just to be around him and give him attention and do the games but it seems to not work. What are some things you suggest I can do. I am at this point were I am really frustrated at him and more frustrated at myself. I need your help!
Interesting that 3 horses ran today that were sired by 'Any Given Saturday' a horse that I got a chance to start at Winstar farms a while ago. Any Given Saturday ran in the Ky derby in '07 and won just over a million dollars. One made it to the winners circle today!

"Filming your audition would be..." on Sarah Hoppel's post on Raising The Baar's wall.
I am trying to plan my 21 day challenge and I was wondering if working on and submitting my online audition was still to broad of a goal? Should I concentrate on more of a specific task in the audition?
Look who arrived: We have 8 healthy Border Collie puppies who decided to join us and two are "red" and white!
John and Luke were having some fun this afternoon playing with Snoopy
Last weekend, Best Friends Animal Society - Horse Haven was pleased to host John and Kathy Raising The Baar presenting at our first Rehoming for Life Workshop presented in conjunction with the Parelli Education Institute Inc. We had over twenty clinic participants from equine rescues all around the country here learning about special challenges that come with rescuing horses, mules and donkeys. ~Ronnie
