Desensitizing Ivy - getting ready to ground drive

Here is Ivy at just shy of one month after purchase - she is now packing the saddle calmly and wears an english bridle with a small o-ring snaffle with long western reins looped under the stirrups and tied over the saddle seat she is accepting light contact- she has a rope halter on underneath the lead is attached to.

I am going to start her ground driving this week - here we are desensitizing and getting her used to the lead as well as walk/whoa/trot on the lead.

She is tying nicely and moving towards pressure now - very pleased.

This is posted as well in her journal - so forgive the double post...
