I get to see Kiya on Monday! I'm so excited!
But, she's had a month off. She's been turned out a decent amount, with and without one of her friends, but the turnout is just a sand arena. When I turned her out previously, she'd just stand there unless there was something exciting happening (i.e. The dog wanted to play, or one of her friends was really up). She didn't have much of a topline to begin with, honestly, though the last day I worked with her she was SO good, listening to my voice and starting to actually stretch at the canter. My giraffe, stretching, at the canter. Ahh!
How should I start off? Just some hand walking around the property, and then ground work, and then start lunging again? I have zero intentions of riding her until she's great on the ground, so it's not like I want to hop back on right away. I just wanted to see if you guys had any good suggestions. :)
