Brett and Pistol: Clinic Pictures

We received pictures from a guy at the clinic who offered to take pictures of Brett's lesson with his phone.  The quality isn't the greatest, but it gives you a flavor.  These were taken on day two.





Gotta love the chicken.


They worked out on the obstacle course on the last day, Friday.  Pistol  is great with pretty much all the obstacles but she has never liked the "cowboy curtain."  Picture a car wash frame with the bits of felt hanging down that slide over your car after its been squirted with water.  A cowboy curtain is similar: a frame with felt or plastic hanging down.  Pistol rushed through with head high.  Mark watched.  Then he held the plastic streamers to one side so there was an open triangle for her to walk through.  She was A-okay with that.  They kept repeating the exercise, with Mark holding the streamers back less and less each time -- until he wasn't holding it at all.  She continued to be fine.

  2. I love Pistol. She's my kind of horse (not that you could tell by what I actually buy!)

  3. Wow, Pistol really reminds me of my horse, Quincy/Cya. I've done that cowboy curtain obstacle before--my horses didn't like it either, and we went through it the same way. It looks like it was a lot of fun.
