November 7th,2010

Since posting last: Audited one day of a Carol Coppinger L3/4 camp
Participated in a L2/3 Online/Freestyle group lesson
Attended, with Sonny, the first Parelli Rendezvous in Jacksonville, Fl
Studied the Blue L2 w/ Linda teaching, studied the old L 1 & 2 Savvy System with Pat teaching, watched the L3 of this series
Have continued to progress, slowly, with Sonny--change of direction is much better, he is getting softer on several things, sideways is the most problematic area, he has trailered to 2 different events -loading is better--but we need the opportunity for us to have lots of play sessions on this Vs needing to load for a class or event trip.

Planned: A get together today with friends to share what we learned and experienced at the Rendezvous.
Signing up for a Kathy Baar L2/3 -2 day clinic in March.
Arranging for a private lesson asap with Carol Herring. It will be 3 or more consecutive private lessons so that I will learn from others lessons as well as my own.
Reading, viewing, studying........ !
Play and progress as often as possible.
