It's amazing how intune they are to us. Hoanna is an introvert like myself and really needs a leader to show her everything is alright. I finally got her over a couple jumps today in a lesson with my instructor/Hoanna's trainer. She's starting to trust me again over jumps. I just have to be more assertive and more of a leader.
