I'm a pretty girl!
It's warm again today. I don't do heat, at least not when it's mixed with humidity. Around here, there's always humidity.
I won't do much with Sunny until evening, but I did take Jet out for a walk this afternoon. Training consists mostly of walking around in areas that provide visual stimulation. You know, horse eating lawn mowers, chickens who run under your feet and good stuff like that. I'm not as young as I used to me, so I want my horses to be as desensitized as possible before I ever climb on board. Jet's not terribly concerned about most things, and even challenged the old lawnmower to a lawn mowing competition. Of course, it wasn't running, so she won hooves down.
After our walk about the yard, I worked with her for a few minutes on moving off pressure. She's very sensitive, so it didn't take much to have her pivoting on both the fore and hindquarters. Lovely cross over on those long front legs of her's, too. I'm excited about what this horse may be able to do once I start riding her. For now, though, it's just a bit of ground work and trust building exercises, followed by a good run about the pasture. Hope you enjoy the show she put on!
