Well put MN Tigerstripes!
Baylee, I suggest you make a list of any of the little things that you horse isn't doing perfectly on the ground. Does she pull on the lead when tied, yank away a foot when you're cleaning, does she move over on the forehand/haunches correctly--lots of little faults can be worked on in her stall, even during an ice storm! I don't have the time to fix these things when I'm getting my younger horses on the bit, or relaxed under saddle, etc., but I can create perfect manners during the winter and have a better ground manndered horse to ride in the spring.
