You guys are right about it being like riding a bike! Shes definitely feeling twitchy about things moving up from behind or from over her head...but...she knows shes supposed to stand still and stay focused on me. I was too nervous that she'd bolt and I wouldn't be able to hold her because I'm just not any where near as strong as a horse. So anyways, I'd just begun cautiously rubbing her down with crumpled bags when I first posted and she was twitching, shuddering, eyes wide, nostrils flared, nervous blowing etc. and I started to worry. But by this morning shes already starting to ignore the bags even though I now have a bunch of them tied to a giant flyswatter and moving all over and around her. Shes not completely calm yet...but I'm no longer worried that she'll bolt and I won't be able to handle her so I think it'll be ok. It really is her training...if the people we bought her from did teach her all this then bless them and I'll be forever grateful! I just wish I knew if I really can trust them, heh. At any rate, I think it'd be hard to fail working with this horse...lol.
