It's probably just because I was so focused on Lakota, but I wasn't scared to get in the saddle or anything yesterday. We took everything slowly and did a lot of desensitizing. I learned that I'm not very good at getting on at the right side of the horse. lol The trainer said that he was really jumpy/spooky and dangerous. Of course, he was spooky and jumpy yesterday, but that doesn't surprise me. I've spent the last 3 years getting to know this horse. I know how much pressure he can take and when to slow down while I'm teaching him something. I really think that I'm the only person that Lakota 100% trusts and that's why I'm making more progress with him than the trainer did.
Nothing of worth comes with ease. <3
