3.5 hours with Dennis

Quick notes...

Z for 2.5. rope handling, letting her come in too close, change of direction with proper stick/rope handling, target practice with 12' line, move to 22'. Up and down hills at canter, stopping multiple times. seeking slow canter. trot down, canter up. canter circles on the incline. when creeping into the circle, ask her head back out of the circle! i was asking more for a sidepass - WRONG!

Rain at liberty - Dennis got very particular with her and her attitude changed. at the end, it was a better idea to stay with dennis then run off. when she was running off, he kept her working and didn't let her change direction for long - he would change her back immediately. her sidepass is stuck to the left.
