Apparently, someone forgot how to turn left in the crossties....
|You want me to do what?!?|
She had a couple "scary" moments in there (i.e. she bumped her bum against the wall and a hoof touched the muck broom which fell...so obvs some troll who eats horses lives there)
So I threw some carrots in my pocket, and picked up the little crop for a bump if needed...and we worked on "getting over" in the cross-tie area, both to the right and to the left...
She was not having it to start, she wanted to back out and I could see her brain starting to shut down: she didn't know what I wanted.
So, we schooled it like she had never seen it before: baby steps, lots of praise, and one good bump: no you must go forward! and she found her left turn signal again, LOL.
I'll definitely make her do it a few more times this week - just to cement it in that no trolls live there (and she loves to be asked a question she knows the answer to)
|I own these crossties now! (even tho' I'm not actually tied....hehe)|
