Worked more on yielding shoulders when turning. She yielded better but is pulling on the halter, so we worked on line in circles until she softened. She had a cough and some congestion when she started working, so I kept the session short

10/01/2018 01:31

Ground work

She has gotten very pushy with her shoulders, and hasn’t been responding well to the stick and string, so today I used the flag to cause more commotion to get more energy from her. It helped a lot.
