She was great. She is always a little fussy, she likes to question if I am sure she has to work but once I make contact with my hands and push her with my legs she gets to work. I always reward her at the end of our hacks with a big trot on a loose rein where she can stretch out (this is where long and low is ok or if you have a nervous horse to encourage relaxation).
Next I lunged Baby L. He did a great impression of Speed Racer on the lunge line. The Eventer is coming today so I let him just get it out of his system. Afterward he got a nice bath then dinner and turn out. Remember the issues I had with him rearing leading in from turn out? Well he is back out in the far paddock so I've been waiting to see if the issue comes up again. I have "graduated" him from the rope halter to a nylon breakaway. I have been leading him out and in from the paddock with this and a chain lead over his nose. This morning my barn kitty decided to hide in the bushes and pop out as we were walking by. L spooked hard but came right back to me like a solid citizen. Big pats and we walked on toward the barn. Yay!
