So Proud of Me! (and Thank You for your Advice!)

I posted a couple of threads about working with a "spoiled" horse...

And in only a short time I am already seeing some progress.

A few days ago it took me 45 minutes to get her to lift her feet
Then it was only 30 minutes.


Today - she didn't want to be caught (and she is in a HUGE pasture...lots of acreage) but I was determined! It took me about an hour - but I walked her down. It was a great feeling to see her finally relax and submit to a halter!

After finally catching her...she gave me her feet pretty readily - but then tried that trick where she leans waaaaayyyy over like she's about to fall. So I just stayed with her - had to do a little hopping back and forth - but I kept ahold of that foot! Her knees went pretty low - but after she realized I wasn't letting go (and she was going to fall over!) she straightened up and behaved....and I got all four feet done in just a few minutes.

Whew!

Feeling very proud of myself today!

Thanks for the great advice!!!

Wundava! You go girl! Way to cowgirl up! When the going gets tough you stand firm and work through it. Sounds like your starting to understand the effort and tenasity needed to train and handle horses. Remember you are the dominant part and she should submit to you. I was very proud to hear you seemed to accomplish part of that. :)

Next time if you take some videos I'm sure many of us would like to see you strut ur mad skills.

LOL! Taking videos would probably require waaaayyyy too much organization - don't know if I can handle that!
