This week, Mistie proved we needed to spend a bit of extra time working on Leading By the Hind Feet. Initially, she did a fair bit of kicking. Then, she didn't have a lot of try & would just allow a hind foot to be suspended behind her for several minutes before she would try to pull it away. It took quite a while that first day to get her to follow the pressure & take a step back. We've been building on that one step throughout the week.
Today, I was very pleased with her response! She quickly followed the feel of the rope on that leg to where I barely had to pick up on the rope to get a response.
