More video of Candi. Long lining

Hey all
Here is a video of Candi. She is about 11 or so weeks post op and seems to be doing well. She is for certain still full of herself, but going well.
Such a hard thing for young horses to be laid up and unable to move their bodies.

I am learning how to long line her myself with the help of the trainer I work for. I was able to do it on my own on Sat and I am hoping to be able to do it by myself a couple times a week in the near future.

You are doing a great job HalfPass! She is looking fabulous!!! You two are going to form such a great bond, that when you are under saddle, you'll be unstoppable!

I'm so thrilled with her progress, HP - three cheers for you and your lovely, lovely mare!!

Thanks you guys.
We have been really working at it. She goes better for the trainer (haha) I think when I do it she senses I am a tad bit
We will get there.
I certainly have to say thanks for all the support I have had and continue to have from you two and many others.

She looks great!

I've never long lined a horse - do they normally go around counter bent for balance? Or is it because she's young?

Hey My Beau,
I think she is still figuring things out. The other horses I have watched on long lines do't do that.
She has only been doing it for about a month I guess. During that time it has been hard to get her to not explode, and learn that she can move forward and not get crazy.
So the answer is no they don't need to be counter bent.

Ah, I see! Thanks HalfPass!!

Stall kept thoroughbred = no fun. I can only imagine trying to keep her calm and focused without ripping around 100 miles and hour. Not a task I would want to do!

She does look nice, and your patience and dedication to her health is just amazing I wish more people were like that.

Thanks so much for that!
It isn't me in the video doing the long lining, but I have done it once. It is a trainer I am working for.

It is a dedication! And a ton of patience! It has been stressful and difficult at some points, but somehow I have managed to just keep my head on straight and continue on.
