But really, the longeing session today went great. And, Andrea and Jen, I kept the longe line off the ground and made her move out. I found that she apparently knows "out"...... considering I never used it then I'm amazed that she remembers. Super smart girl :)))
As for the thunderstorm, after that incident, I took the hint and untacked her in her stall for safety measures, and then I handwalked her five laps around the arena each way since I didn't want an incident to happen with just the line and her breakaway halter. I had more control over her and she definitely relaxed when I was leading the way. Then I hosed her off, and she was awesome in the crossties even with the rumbling thunder. She kept an eye on me.
Lawdy, what a cutie!
