So I just moved stables, and my horse is acting much more happy and youthful than she did at her old place. I know she loves me, but I feel that she hasn't been respecting me as much lately because she is still in adjustment mode. So, that being said, I was bringing my horse in today and she kicked me so hard in the thigh. I'm icing it beneath my laptop as I type... maybe Ill post some pictures once it actually looks the way it is going to look (it's still in the process of forming a bruise now).
So now I'm even more determined to be firmer with my horse and work with her and get to a level that we are both comfortable with. Lots of work to do, but first thing is first... no bolting as soon as I put her in the field and no giving me trouble when I'm leading her!
