Jewel is doing well, learning to lunge and develop some ground manners. She still pulls on the halter when lunging and she overreacts when asked to go out on the circle. Treatment to the injury she sustained to her left hind foot was actually beneficial to desensitizing her to having her feet handled. I really concentrated on this every time a lot and last week, when Daphne trimmed her, she was perfect! Jewel does seem to be very stiff and sore when moving and we’ve noticed that she continually rests her larger left knee when in her stall or sleeping. It’s beginning to look she she will need more time before she will be ready to start under saddle, even though she’s almost three years old. We’re probably going to need to give her more time for growing over the summer and reassess her in the fall.
