I said that the last video was the last one, from that session. Not that I wasn’t going to stop putting up videos of my horse playing basketball.
This is a bit of a bloopers reel. He’s done this exactly three times. Nothing is perfected yet. The immediate goal is to have him stand on his mat and wait quietly. We spent lots of time standing between basket attempts. Then, on cue, walk forward and pick up his ball and dunk it. Then return to his mat.
It’s a lot of small individual actions stuck together. Right now he is getting clicked for each little part as he completes it with lots of guidance. Eventually I hope to stand off to the side and tell him to go then watch as he goes to get his ball dunks it and walks back to the mat. I can’t wait to see if it ever happens.
