    I think she was testing to see if she could get away with being a silly goose bareback. Well done!! Awesome progress :)

    Great that you gave her what she needed! It's NOT that a horse never needs firmness! It's that losing your cool, & getting mean and/or mad is murder on the relationship & ineffective.

    Horses are hardwired to out-persist/frustrate predators, & when handlers get frustrated, the horse chalks one up for himself.

    What actually changed here in OP's approach was that she DIDN'T get frustrated (yell, jab the horse in the mouth, etc) this time! Instead, she remained calm, didn't take the horse's antics personally, & gave the correction in the proper way & to the proper degree that the horse needed.

    Hehe thanks again Northern Everytime I go up to see her, I think Patience. Patience. Patience. And it works!! Though I think by putting more patience into horses I'm taking it out of using it with people. Whoops... :P
    And, I'm being a bit ditsy, but what does OP mean?

    I believe it's the abbreviation for "Original Post", or "Original Poster" in a thread.... If that's not correct, there are many others who've been on the forum longer than me who will know!
    Sounds like things are going so much better, and keep up the good work! :)
