I just wanted to give an upodate on Jewel. The bitchy episode has not been repeated, and I have started working her in earnest. She is learning to lunge (and doing very well at it!) and today, there was a milestone in her life- she carried a bareback pad and felt a girth aroud her barrel for the first time! I was SO proud of her- no drama at all, no shying, no jumping around, just put it on, buckled it up, and she was like… whatever.
We have also been working on stopping when I say whoa- she stopped so quick today on verbal comand only that she tripped herself!
I am very very proud of her!
