Okay so things have been going great with Breeze, she is even starting to ground tie, and I have chase the other horses away from my things (they like eating my buckets and ropes and stuff) and usually Breeze will try and run with them, but now I can drop her rope, say whoa, and do anything and she will just stand there. When out of her pen, she is getting better too, she will walk behind, I have got her use to going to places she use to be spooky with, but there is still a problem with going out of her pen...
She gets really distracted over everything, she gets distracted over cows... which in her pen, she ignores, she gets wide eyes in places, and snorts in certain places. Today I was walking her toward the road, and she heard a noise and bolted forward, almost running me over, but I corrected her, walked her back and in circles and stuff, and then contined to where we were going, she did the same thing 2 more times, because I took her back to her pen, and she calmed down.
I know the main thing now we need to work in is desensitizing and her spooky self. She is not like this with anything in her pen, but as soon as you take her out, she gets spooky over random things. I need to work on this, and my trainer will help me when I go to her!
