This is not a horse.

This is a Giant Puppy.

No, really.

Had a lovely ride today, good canter in both directions, lots of circles. She likes to counter bend when we go to the right at the trot and that needs some work
(MOAR outside rein, MOAR inside leg!)

We practiced some turns on the haunches at the walk, where she had to reach deep underneath herself, almost spinning in place (she was really proud of herself at that) 

After our ride, I looped the reins up safely, and proceeded on a poop scoop run.

And she followed me.

and kept following me. 

So the scientist in me started experimenting.

Stop when I stop?

Over the ground poles?

Into the corner?

All around the arena? 


So much praise and snuggles.

I am convinced.
