    Really Confused - Follow Up

    So I posted things about ground tying issues with my mare, along with problems with standing still. I asked for advice and dealt with my mare religiously. It was weird, for three days we fought back and forth about it with each other, and when I came back on the fourth day, she was absolutely perfect. She will now stand still when told to 'whoa', she is patient, and will stand politely. But there was no middle ground or gradual progress. She was just awful one day and perfect the next and has been since. I'm so confused. I'm happy but confused. Just wanted to share ;P

    Have you ever tried to learn something new that you just didn't get for several days, then all of the sudden it just clicked, and you got it. I would guess that the same thing kind of happened with your mare.

    The thing with horses is when we're trying to acheive something specific in a training session it can be expected to make a "few steps forward" with success then all of a sudden we can expect a "few steps backwards". Then back to a successful training session then a backslide. There is no way to predict how long it will take to get a consistent successful training session. There is an old adage that says, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again."
