Rumour's First Cross Tying

I went to the barn today, and no one else was there other than myself, so I decided it would be the perfect time to cross tie Rumour for the first time, since there was no extra noise or commotion to scare her the first time she was in the cross ties.
She did a lot better than what I expected. When I clipped her up, she stood there for a second, and then went to walk forward, and realized she couldn't keep going, so she just stood there for a minute or so with her head up. Then she relaxed, and backed up, to were she stands so her head is free. I patted her then, and waited until she backed up to find what her limits were. After that, she stood calmly as if she's been cross tying for years, and I did a full grooming on her, and she stood completely still the whole time. I am so impressed with her!
Afterwards we went for a walk in the arena, and she was a little 'hyper', but nothing I couldn't handle .

And back in her stall after her training session of the day :

LOL I know! She doesn't seem that big when I am with her, but looking at pics of her now and back when she was little, she's humongous!
I love her halter too! It's such a different colour, although it needs a round with the washing machine...

She's certainly grown :) Just as an aside.. those crossties are quite high for her. She should be able to keep her head at just above wither height (i.e. Relaxed) in order to be comfortable while standing in crossties. Sounds like she's getting a good education from the get-go :)

Ok, thanks for telling me :) I'll use the lower ones until she has grown more to use those ones.
And yes, I want her to be well trained now, just in case I have to sell her. Plus, it just makes it easier on her future training.
