Then I saw another break in the corn, with a road to a camper/trailer. No ditch, so I walked her into that. She eyeballed the corn waving in the wind, but she didn't act up. I rested her for a few mins, then walked out and back to the road. We made it home no problems.
Tonite we went down the dead end dirt road. ALL THE WAY down! I had no idea it was so long - I'll bet almost a mile! We trotted several places, and as we got closer to the end, she had an awesome road trot going - I'll bet she looked beautiful! I didn't fuss about her speed, she kept it constant, and she wasn't running off with me, so I just let her go.
At the end of the road, was a gorgeous QH stallion! He whinnied and she just stopped dead in her tracks! LOL! She must be in heat... she gave me a little resistance when I turned her to leave, but she wasn't disobedient. She stopped a few times, but then she gave in and we got on down the road. We trotted some more, and she had her nice slow trot on again. We stopped to listen to the cows, heard a quail, saw a bunny, and just feel the breeze.
I really think she had a good time!
She wasn't too sweaty, so I didn't hose her off. She was pretty hungry for her dinner, though.
Oh, she's backing up and fighting me again with putting in the bit... once it's in, she drops her head, but... argh.
I'm going to have to do the concentrated training in the AM - it's been over 105 the past few days. It just takes your energy away, even though it's "cooling down" to 92 by 7 PM. JEESH.
I'm planning on working some more on the cantering, and sticking to the fence, and then we'll move on to the next lesson.
I think she thinks she's always to walk next to a fence - she gravitates towards the pasture fences along the road!! That's fine with me, as long as there is no trash or holes...
