I can definitely feel the difference between riding near their corral and riding away from the trailer.
Our short ride yesterday was in and out, not a loop.
Nice loose reins....neck reined on the way in. Two hands and short tight reins on the way out. Had to hold her back just a bit.
Not that I mind, but my wife's quarter horse has to trot to keep up so I want her to dog walk.
This time we didn't stop at the trailer but went down the road and up the next trail for a couple of miles. Made her gait in a flat walk and put her into a running walk from time to time the whole way and sweated her up pretty good. Most of the time when we get back to the trailer my mare knows the ride is over......this time it wasn't.
I'm going to work on trying to convince her the ride isn't over just because she sees the trailer so there isn't any burning desire to get back to it. I'm thinking when see sees the trailer it means more work, not less.
I'm open to suggestions....
