An update on Barb’s training progress from Kaya:
Barb has been gaining new experiences on the ground and in the saddle. We took a hand walk out on the trails and have been ground working on different parts of the property. While Barb initially has many opinions and doesn’t believe me that she can rely on me to look out for her, we eventually get to a place where she understands that she doesn’t have to be on guard all the time. Barb doesn’t surrender her leadership easily, but when she finally gets with me and settles in, she does huge releases of blowing air, sighing and relaxing and it’s very rewarding. Every time we work together, it takes less and less time for Barb to realize that she’s better off going with me rather than trying to fend for herself.
