Kaya, one of our dedicated Horsemanship volunteers, has been giving Renee some much needed TLC. Here is what she had to say about her relationship with Renee:

Renee is super intelligent and very aware of her surroundings. She will constantly watch me while I walk around getting her ready to work and when we are doing groundwork she is very attentive and sensitive to my energy. We recently improved significantly on backing up (mostly me improving my communication) and it is really cool to see how she reacts to my subtle instructions to back now that I can ask it more efficiently. Renee gets very anxious about ropes, especially around her back feet, so we are working on desensitization a lot lately. Renee loves attention and I think she even enjoys the songs I make up for her (even though she looks at me like I’m insane).”
