The picture of her "flying" is my favorite! <3 haha. This was her first time free lunging, she did well. W/T/C, stop and change direction on command. The pics of her with the rope slung over her back are some pics of her learning to STAND. She is horrible with this, she wont let you brush her, walk near or around her, but we worked on ground tying. She will now successfully stand with the line over her neck, to be brushed, me to walk away and get stuff, and walk in circles around her.
It took time XD She would move and then I would immediately grab her, back her several steps, and bring her back and pull down and give her a firm, "stand".
We continued our leading work, turns on the haunches, fore and even side passing for the first time. She did amazing, crossing over and going straight to her side. She is so smart!
And she LOVES her new food, I am mixing purina strategy and purina equine junior!
