Day 1 – Paris – Yielding HQs for First Time during Breaking In
3.15 minutes – Paris is a 2 year old filly that is here for breaking in. She has had very limited handling and this is her first session in the round yard. This is the first time that she has been taught to yield her hindquarters. To start with she over reacts to the stick and flag. Angie has to softly bump up on the lead rope to stop the forward motion while asking her to yield her hindquarter away with her body and stick cue. The moment she moves the hindquarters away without going forward Angie stops and rewards her. When Paris over reacts Angie doesn’t make a big deal out of it, she just keeps walking with her and keeps her body posture and energy low and rubs her Paris with her stick and flag until she stands still and relaxes.
