    Does this mean she has trust for me???

    Okay, so I finally went out to the farm today, as it has finally warmed up. I worked on leading with Breeze and standing still. She did great, I went out in the yard, out of her pen, and would randomly stop in random places. She would either stop as soon as I did, or she would take 1-2 more steps, and then stop. I did some walk to trot transitions from the ground and vice versa, I would even trot and stop, and stop then trot. Anyways, she did great. In her pen, she followed me around with no rope, and if she did not, I would just say come on, and she would come.

    I practised standing still, untied, and I groomed her, and just stood there with her. She was great at that too. I also worked on staying out of my space, so I would walk a head of her, and she would follow behind, then I would stop and say whoa, with her 5-6 feet behind me, and she would stop, then I would walk up to her and give her a rub on the neck or face.

    But what I am really here to talk about is this, when I was done with her, I got out my camera and took the halter off, I let her walk off, and she laid down right in front of me to roll, she was about 5 feet away. Once she rolled, I walked up to her while she was still down, and she let me rub her neck and body while she was still down. The other horses will not let me walk up to them while they are down, but Breeze did, does this mean she trusts me? Does this mean she respects me? Does this mean she thinks of me as a leader?

    Also, she did not lay down while on a lead, she was free to do what she wanted to, because I told her to.

    Thanks, I want to start Liberty Horsemanship with her, as she is still to young to ride, and I think we got a good start with Breeze following me!

    Let me suggest the perfect person for you to PM for advice - Saranda! She's from Latvia, and if you saw her last 4 pages of photos in the thread "Moving To A New Home", your jaw would drop in astonishment! Check it out, then you'll want to get a hold of her for sure! Enjoy, and good luck with Breeze :)
