The horses are settling in and becoming more solid with everyday we get to work them. They each have had moments of misunderstanding which is to be expected for any horse in their situation.
It is interesting to see the horses change. They do whatever they have to do to save their selves in their own mind and once they recognize that there is no threat they become as peacefully and dossal as they were violent in their attempt to protect themselves.
Going extremely well for the second ride and she had lulled me into trusting her and I let my guard down and she showed me it was alittle too soon. Her instinct to protect her belly showed up in a violent buck when my calf came gently against her side. I was off before her and I knew what happened. So I got back on, prepared myself mentally and worked through the situation. This episode was simply an opportunity for confidence to develop for her and I.
