I tacked Cricket up today and she was super antsy. She kept looking back at me and moving away from the tack. One of the trainers that walked by said "Just smack her and MAKE her stand still!" But I didn't listen. Instead I went super slow and showed everything to her. The foam pad, the saddle pad, and the saddle. She stood very still afterwards. I'm glad I didn't do it his way and went with my gut instinct.
She lunged great, listened amazingly. We did some ground exersizes too and she did AMAZING. I'm so proud! I'm going to ride her tomorrow after school and I can't wait! I'm SO excited.
Wish us luck! I'll take lots of pictures =D
