Also-when you are done with going out, and ready to come back-save a little energy and work her a little when she gets back too. You don't want to make it so that the only place she works is away from the barn. SOme days I work ONLY at the barn and then go out on a short trail to cool out. I always switch everything up.

Lol I don't think she can run out of energy. But that's a good idea. Kind of how I got her to stop bolting home. Would head home then go past driveway and continue on until she calmed down.

Take comfort that you're not the only one riding that boat right now.....I was really hoping to have a positive ride today and this guy comes into the barn, plants his ass in the bleachers and watches me ride the whole time!!! I couldn't concentrate a **** and by the time I was done riding I was furious with this guy! I got in my car and held off bawling until I got in the driveway......

Another riding session to the pot because of some ignoramus that has nothing to offer except his silent critical eye!!!!

Sorry, had to rant!

Yay today went great!!! We worked in the arena for a few minutes then went out through some fields then headed back, worked in the arena for a few laps then went home.

And of course some pictures. The first is her starring at the cross country meet that was apparently going on at the fairgrounds then some of our ride and the last is her walking herself back to the barn haha.
