World Equine Clicker Games!

Siog and I are going to enter the World Equine Clicker Games, hosted by Hannah Dawson Equine of Clix College!  This is done by video - just 3 minutes long and people can enter from all over the world!  What a fun concept!

Here's a link to their Facebook page:


and here's a You Tube video that explains it  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NM4lCc5t-A

We've been practicing and I'm so excited!  I'm going to enter the Clix Trix class with the brilliant and lovely Siog demonstrating her obstacle course skills. Here's the routine:

  1.  Start by standing on a mat, head down
  2.  Trot to, and in between ground poles and stand
  3.  Back up between the poles with me standing behind
  4.  Walk/ trot over to jumps - over 1st set, over 2nd set front feet only, step back with front feet, over    again
  5.  and on to cavalletti - jump!
  6.  To the the weave cones!  5 pink cones spaced apart that Siog has to zig zag through and finally
  7.  The tire pedestal!  Up with front feet and pivot back legs around
TA DA!!!

Stay tuned for the video - our submission will be next week!
