A Good Thursday Morning vote to you! I thought Wednesday would be boring, not. I have trained Fancy to step on boards and approach things since she was 10 months old. I decided she is ready to do this under saddle. I laid a good sized board in her corral. We done some groundwork and desensitizing. I let her walk over it without me on her. She kept pawing it and making the noise. She likes the noise SHE makes. When she was walking over it fine, I mounted and rode her over it. She walked slowly the first two or three times in one direction. Changed directions and I had to encourage her to walk on. She did. She stopped as soon as she was off of the board and turned her head to look at me and sniff my leg on the left and right. It was like she was asking me if we were ok. After a few repeats we were walking right over that board just fine. So I unsaddled her and hand walked her around the neighborhood for some grazing. Folks were asking me why I wasn't riding. I told them I allready did that:) Nobody understands. It is not just about the riding:) On the way home, that fox crossed the road in front of us! He stopped and slowly turned to look at us. I shook my lead rope at it and when I did, Fancy stomped at it with her front leg. When she did, that fox ran into the bushes. I patted her on the neck and we finished our walk and went home. I think if I am riding her and she sees that fox, I think she will try to stomp it.
