I have been introducing some ground work to Maya recently, the connection at liberty is is really coming and in everything she is much more trusting. I tried some lunging with her and she loved working around obstacles, I think she feels she has to focus on me more,so she has spent more time staying connected and less time spooking. I try to keep the feeling of liberty when I use tack, wanting the connection and a soft willingness,that develops from liberty. Noo noo had to have a play around the cones and poles too,even though its still all about relationship I can ask gradually for more gymnastic work to improve their bodies as well as mental wellbeing. Without loosing the connection. This is when ‘training’ becomes easy and fun,no force,no gadgets.
