Rode her again today - got the whole herd in, sorted and vaccinated cows.

The cows didnt want to come in so I ended up riding her pretty hard in order to get them in and she handled it alright, and was obviously fired up and hot about it, but I don't blame her. There was a lot of "instant take-offs" and "0-60" moments that were necessary.

I also used her to sort and push cows up to the alleyway. She got a bit ancy to start, but got over at as it was really hot out and it was a few hour job. I think that she needs a lot of long hard days under her belt to get her to where I want her. Which is okay with me!

When she got bored waiting and started fidgeting, I went to the slab fence and did rollbacks on it. HOLY CRAPOLIES IS SHE GOOD AT THEM. I even worked her up to loping into them and she didnt get hot! She actually mellowed out a bit and loped like a normal horse. Actually, I loped her in the corral quite a bit and it was super light and smooth and relaxed.

We are getting there...

She's finally slowed down and relaxed a bit more at a lope! I have a little bit of video evidence. At times, she still scrunches up, but its getting better!

Her lope now feels ride-able. Before, she'd be so un rhythmic that I'd feel like I'm bouncing around like a sack of potatoes.
