|Calm & paying attention!|
|A good girl!|
Later, Karen rode Sherman, as I rode Farah. We took turns passing each other - first in the arena & then out & around the pastures. Calm! Farah was perfectly calm! No pinned ears, no chomping on the bit because Sherman was in front & again - paying attention to me.
I feel like we're making such positive forward progress in reducing the stress cycle that I've been trying unsuccessfully - to overcome for ages now. For Farah to finally understand that being with other horses does not necessarily make it a horse race is huge! Next, we'll be going on a calm trail ride! :-)
I am So appreciative of the mentoring both Farah & I have received from these two!
