Ottb Transition

I haven't seen very many change over time pictures for off the track horses. So I wanted to show how my new horse is doing. This is Merab she is four years old and was really bad at the track (she only got third once and placed last in the rest of her races). I got her for free from a training farm, probably because she had a really bad problem with biting. She used to be really high strung and all over the place. She has gotten way better since I got her. No more biting ! Just today I rode her and two geldings were running around the ring and trying to touch her when we passed. She was so good and just kept going. We are getting to the point now that when I lead her I don't even have to touch her to stop, back, or turn.
Please ignore me in the pictures I'm exaggerating my position with her so I don't use my hands except for turning.

The order is:
1-the day I got her
2&3- the first week and her first time outside in a long time.
4- two weeks
5- two months
6- third ride ( two months)
7- four months ride
8&9- third time jumping
10- four months

I think the pictures alone show how much she has calmed down.
