I went to the barn on Friday and once again I got there just as the trainer was taking Sun out of her stall and heading to the arena. I of course took a seat to observe.
Sunny was all tacked up. First, the trainer lunged her for awhile in both directions. Sunny was great.
Then the trainer began to ground drive her, and boy was I impressed! The trainer had her walking and trotting, going over ground pole set ups, turning, stopping, backing up, the works. She looked wonderful! I was very, very impressed.
Then, the trainer decided to get on. She walked Sunny around the arena a few times. Sunny was wonderful. She did balk and stop quite a few times, but she never tried to act up. The trainer could easily stop her and back her up under saddle.
The trainer has come off of her though. She said that Sunny has a serious buck.
So, the plan is for her to have a good walk/trot by the end of the month. I can't wait! Posted via Mobile Device
