Today Jo and I continued our training on barrels. For the past several workouts I feel like she has been working off her front end as opposed to her rear like I want her too. So we worked on roll backs, lead changes, and up an incline at a slow pace.
She was very relaxed today and was happy to walk and even trot at a slow pace the whole pattern. No fighting to slow down and listen. Slow and steady we are building a foundation.
Jo has resigned to trust and listen to me, and it felt so good to feel like we were working together instead of fighting each other. I guess we are starting to speak the same language.
Slowly slowly slowly, but surely we ate gaining. Until our next ride. ❤
