With no audience, she’s a ham

As predicted, she was back to her regular, sensible self today.

Yep, it was the trot pole causing some extra speed during the lunge session yesterday, just like I thought. And possibly also the photographer, who knows?

Had a great lunge session and a shorter ride today.
As mentioned, she is a sensitive mare, including to the leg, and at the start of each ride we have a discussion about whether the leg should be accepted or not.
Each time, we do a little better, but I still have to ride with the legs just barely draped around her barrel for her to continue on forward in a semi-submissive manner.
When she does get on board with the idea, she’s lovely.
I have kept the ridden sessions very short, mainly working from the ground building up more stamina and muscle.

She’s in really good shape and really enjoys coming out.

She's a good girl, tries hard each time she comes out, and will soon be a  Puppy Dog to handle on the ground.

  1. Yes, she really has moments where she really comes through. She likes to work and REALLY likes to be pampered, handled, doted on, all of it. She’ll be a teddy bear soon.
