Mistie: July 29

This week, we spent time working on improving the body control exercises we've been working on lately & just added Counterbending at the Walk today.

New this week, we spent a few days down at the Rollback Fence that I have set up in the hay yard. Mistie did pretty well with it. It has helped improve her stops & quicken her feet up a bit, especially in the turnaround.

We also took several rides through the pastures & walked the creek for the first time. Mistie does well riding out & about but likes to look around at all of the sights. Once we got to the creek, I did opt to get off & introduce her to the water on the ground first, especially because there's a bit of an embankment that was a bit daunting to her at first. With some encouragement, it didn't take long before she was in the water. Once I got back on, she walked in with no problem & walked a good length of the creek & back again.
