So anyway, last night we made the loop, and coming back I decided to go down Albert's drive to the other pasture, because he had the driveway lined with round bales. Both sides. She was a little tense. I could feel her like a spring by the time we exited out at the pasture gate! I let her relax, then we went back in. Sneaky, she figured out it was hay, and walked real close to the left hand row, and grabbed a bite as we went by. haha.
Then I took her off the driveway into the grass and the trees, and rode her UP the steep bank to the road. I grabbed her mane in the middle of her neck and pulled myself forward, and she was GREAT! She hit the road jogging, and kept jogging, so I had to bring her back. Then when we got to "Tulsa's" driveway, I turned her into the grass and rode her in the "valley" between the road bank and the fence yard. Before we got to the trees and the creek, I turned her UP the steep bank, and she 'climbed' up to the road. All very good!! I was very pleased with her.
THEN I stopped her at my car, and I knew the trunk was not closed tight, so I had her side pass to the trunk, and I lifted it up and took out the hay bag. She had a bite ;) I wrapped the rope around the horn and had the bag hanging off, banging her on the shoulder and upper left leg, as we went into the pasture. She was a little confused, and once turned around and took another bite. But it went well. And when I rode her into the pen, I had her stop and I tossed the bag in front of her. She thought that meant GO EAT and started towards it lol.
I think she did super.
