Well, I didn't have a good ride, but I did have a good training session with my new mare. She's 4, and very much a drama queen, and I haven't been able to do very much with her. The other day I got her out, after a while of working with her to let us put on the lead rope (she doesn't like the lead lol), and then walked her down into the barn, where after a few minutes of aquainting herself with the new surroundings she stood like a champ while I spend a good 30 minutes or so working the huge knots out of her mane, and managed to walk out of the barn pretty calmly even with the stallion freaking out because she was there. Then yesterday I went out, and figured I would have another chunk of time working to get the lead rope on, but literally 5 minutes after walking into her stall I had the lead rope and chain on (not a big fan of chains, but she needs manners badly, to the point of being dangerous without a chain as she has no respect for just the halter), and was able to walk her around. She did end up throwing a hissy fit when she saw the two chickens that had managed to get out of their pen, but she walked like a normal horse to her stall, not prancing, no arab tail, no snorting ect. Made me quite happy. I'm going to give her a couple days off, just so that she isn't being pushed too hard, but I'm very pleased with how she's doing.
