I am always amused by the trainer + gaggle course walks. I love the
detailed explanation the trainer gives to the 8 year olds. It reminds me
of the Far Side on what we say to dogs and what they hear.
Trainer: Now here you need a strong opening rein, sit up and half halt.
Rachel -- Bo is sluggish, give him 2 light taps here to wake him up. This
rides in 4 but you have to have your leg on strongly...
8 year old: Omigod a fence! Whew, made it! Omigod a fence! Whew, made it!
Actually, it's not just 8 year olds...
