Progress is being Made!
Someone at one time has spent a lot of time or money on training her. She has a great stop, a great one rein stop and will walk on command and trot on command. She backs up the best of all our horses.
What she does not like is a tight rein. A loose rein and a slight wiggle of a finger is all it takes for a turn. Slight leg pressure tightens the turn . Neck reining is foreign to her at this time. What I need to do is find my old riding buddy and see if she has dressage training. That aspect is foreign to me, and i don't want to mess her up.
I didn't get all the time on her that I wanted, but now that Elaine is back, she can take over.
The thumb is healing well and I am off to see the Doc tomorrow, probably about some physio.
Life is real good on the Acreage!
