11.04.2019 BREAK :(
12.04.2019 BREAK :(

both days with unexpected things that stole my time :(

13.04.2019 10th time doing GW
I did not much warming up this day, but started very soon with the stand-still exercises. It was a sunny day, so the cyclists were out en masse and of course Radieserl had to take a look as again one hard breathing bright yellow dressed guy came out of the woods. It was ok, it was a bit distracting but ok. But after a few attempts of forward down one of the cyclists stopped at the fence and called me - it was a friend of my better half, so I released Radieserl to do something on his own to have a chat with the guy - I didn't want to be impolite.
After 10 minutes chatting I called Radieserl back, but he was not that fond. We did again forward down and stelling, then my boyfriend came at the yard and I had to stop again.
Then the stable owner came - again I had to stop. Then one of the girls stopped by - again.
This was quite annoying for both of us. Sometime we managed a bit of LFS on circle and straight and he remembered haunches-in at the right hand very well. We got thr
ee steps :)
But it was so discontinuously that day. And I still do not have a plan with the licking-nipping. Redirection doesn't work, ignoring doesn't work, no treats (just praising) doesn't work, reprimanding doesn't work, more and more relaxing doesn't work, no pressure doesn't work. I am slowly getting the impression it is the cavecon again. I will try again with putting in a curb (just putting in) and see if he is more relaxed then.
We are very experienced in the nipping-biting-game!!
We did a bit liberty, also tried haunches-in but we were at the arena too long already and both of us we not that motivated anymore.

Overall: when we got the chance to do someting, it was ok, haunches-in was very good in my opinion, but the circumstances were not the best this day.

14.04.2019 BREAK
It took me more than 3 hours to get "the thing they used to call my horse" clean. No more motivation for work was left after and my arms were falling off like leaves in autumn.

The Email Coaching told me I can move further to module 4 or to advanced groundwork, but I am thinking of getting into the liberty module now. Hm. Unsure. Can I do longeing and liberty simultanously? I have to ponder a bit and my ask in the group later.
