Talking My friend worked with Gracie yesterday.

And they did great! I'm so proud! This is the only time anyone but me has worked with her since I got her, and I'm really happy with how well Gracie did. Of course, my friend's pretty talented, and so much like me that I doubt Gracie felt at all uncomfortable. But anyway, my friend lunged her for awhile, only getting a little goofy when some guy next door started walking around his yard on this boingy things. o_O Then she long-lined and they trotted around for a bit, and worked on her lateral moves. And today, I long-lined her with her new bit for the first time, and of course, she did amazing. I'm just so proud!

And of course, a few pictures from yesterday.


What a pretty girl.

Trying to come to me so I can "save" her.


Trotting around.

They really did great. Ugh, I'm so proud, I can't get over it.

Did I mention my friend is crazy abusive and tried to beat my poor, cooperative Gracie into submission? o_O Haha, jk jk. She was moving the whip to her other hand.

My favorite picture. Gracie is doing so good!

Awww, great pictures! Cute baby :) :)

Actually, a "good" lunger will move with the horse - the person has to work just as the horse is working, you cannot just stand there. You have to engage the back end through your body position and the focus of your eyes.

But in this instance, she is not Lunging the baby, she is ground driving the baby.
