Since I won’t be able to do any more work on the board for a while due to her mystery injury 😦
Rue’s board session on Tuesday evening was….interesting. She was incredibly fired up and kept either knocking the board off the 2×4 or running to the side of the board. I certainly can’t say anything bad about her enthusiasm! She worked with me for 7 minutes straight and never got frustrated or left. This was after we did some handling earlier in the evening alternating with some stuff with Miles. She and I really seem to be connecting now. Of course I say that and now she’s wounded so we will be unable to work together for a little while.
It ended up that Rue got rewarded for 88%, but really only hit 70% with half of those being either high or with her back feet. She got me on three bad hits–oops! This is why it really helps to video…
I would say that I need to start tightening up my criteria again and make sure we get at or above 90% for several successive sessions before I raise the board. Unfortunately this will have to wait a bit. Anyway, here’s the video. She made me laugh so hard at some of her antics 🙂
