That is great! If you can keep her happy and motivated without the treats, that don't use the treats. Treats should just be an added incentive, a reason for the horse to try if they are not so keen on the whole idea. If she is willing to try without them, then don't use them. And don't worry about going too slow, she will get way more confused by you going too fast. You can't really go too slow, except that it may take longer than necessary to get the job done if you go too too slow, but I really wouldn't worry. Like you said, you tend to rush things. So if you go slower, it should turn out just about right. If she does seem confused, take a step backwards, not forwards.
I refuse to let adventure leave me in the dust. The time of my life is out there, I just have to go get it.
