You two look wonderful and I suspect we will be able to watch a great partnership evolve between you two.
Now, you have started something and you must follow through. We need updates on EVERY show, with lots of video (Train you MOM!!) and photos.
Thank you, Allison! I remember when I posted her pics while back (last year) while being very frustrated and discouraged by my then trainer, you were the fist one to say this horse CAN be trained to come off her forehead and learn to go round with the right trainer. And you were so very right (even though it was hard to believe that time).
I don't think she'll progress any higher than level 1 because of her confo (and that's opinion of my trainer as well), still it did look SO unreachable back then. And I think we'll see too. To my surprise she seems to enjoy it most of the time, and she definitely did look very proud when she made those tests (and now requires attention all the time already for the 3rd day!
