Back in Tack

Decided to longe Tesla in her tack yesterday. She has definitely packed on some chubs, cause I could barely get the girth around her (good thing I have an extender!) 

She was chill about it all (she's always been good about tacking up and grooming)

We had a lovely longe session, and I kept it short and high quality.
A listening walk and trot both directions. I can merely lift the whip with a verbal command and usually I don't have to touch her with it (smart girl :)

As a reward for her good behaviour, I took her on a mini hike up the back trail so we could see the sunset, and she could free graze a little.

It was so clear, we could see some recognizable sights:
