Despite 25mph gusting winds at the barn today howling like banshees and roaring like the roof was coming down, Tesla was a rock star!
When I brought her up to the grooming area, the trees were whipping back and forth, and she wanted to be scared, sorta jumped in place, so I told her what a good girl she was, and then she settled right down.
We did lots of circles today, after looking at my videos, I shortened my reins and brought my hands up - so we had some lovely moments of contact and being on the bit (despite the crazy weather chaos all around us (including other panicking ponies).
And, because she was such a super good girl, as a treat, I took her out behind the arena to the grassy knoll and let her free graze for 20 minutes or so.....she could've mowed the entire area, LOL.
