I was so surprised and so happy! Yesterday was my 4th or 5th lesson with Hammer. I was working with him in the arena like I did the week before - working on walk, trot, and cantor using body language and energy. When I stopped him, I gave him some pets for doing so well, then I turned away and walked off. He followed me!!!!! I went around the arena and he stayed right with me! My instructor/trainer said he trusts me now and likes my touch. I hope that's true. I will feel much more comfortable with him now. It was a great lesson, and I just wanted to share my excitement with people who understand! Thanks for reading!
