It's not anything amazing but, I feel really great about where we're at with winter coming. I've spent a lot of time this summer ground driving my filly all over the roads several miles at a time and working on gee and haw. It's really paid off and since the weather was really just perfect this morning and she's been doing exceptionally well with the ground driving we decided to hitch her up. This is the first time she's been hitched up since early spring/late winter. We drove about 3 or 4 mile total up and down hills on a low traffic neighborhood road. Nothing bothered her and she let cars, atvs, etc all pass without a moment of hesitation. We're looking forward to continuing our ground driving this winter with hopes of getting some real driving time in next spring.
Here's a short video before the camera died.
Oh yeah, and we used the jingle bells.
