Beautiful Mare!!
Beauty's Friday evneing Training Session: Tonight went so much better than last night!! I used a different approach and IT WORKED!! (for those that don't know I worked with her Thursday evening and the water idea terrified her)I rubbed the hose (with a spray nozzle on this time) all over Beauty. That didn't bother her in the least. She was like ok I know what this is what is next? So then I started spraying the water on the ground in front of her. This she didn't like to much as it sprayed her a bit. She backed up and I was like ok I need something different. But before we could move on I knew we needed to work a bit at her coming to me when she back up and we worked on that a bit. She did good with that! Then Beauty seemed a bit interested in the hose head/nozzle so I let her sniff it. Then I started to spray the water and she sticks her nose in it. What she was after was a drink but it was definitely success that she stick her nose in at her own accord. I let her think that it is her idea to get wet and not mine..haha! She kept sticking her nose into the water and getting a drink. We did this on both sides. Not sure how long we worked on this but before I quit working on this I wanted to see if she was brave enough to walk toward the water of her own accord. She did it three times and each time stuck her nose in the water!! I was so amazed and happy with her and how she did tonight! We are going to continue working with this hopefully a bit each day. Once we did that I got her to walk beside me and even trot beside me a bit. Then I got Beauty to back up and then I called it a day with her. I was so proud of her!
I also rode Navajo but with lack of time won't update on that yet too. It went well though! ?
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!! Love Ruth Ann ? Navajo ? Beauty
p.s. sorry this is so long =D
