This week, Nelly has continued to work on Flexing, Bend at the Walk, Bending Transitions, Vertical Flexion at the Standstill, Walk, & now Trot, & Stopping & Backing. We also introduced the Cloverleaf Exercise & Shoulder In/Out. We continue to focus on the softness when a rein is picked up & her responsiveness to my legs throughout the rest of her body.
Today, she got a full-blown bath & got her mane braided & her tail wrapped. Aside from the flies being quite bothersome, she did great!
Next week, we'll continue to work on these exercises with a focus on shoulder control.

Next week's update will be posted on Friday.
I do my best to get these updates posted in a timely manner, but it's not uncommon for me to be outside until after dark, depending on the weather, my schedule, & who gets worked when so updates will sometimes be posted quite late in the evening. Don't be alarmed if you don't see your update right away. In rare cases, I may have to push them until the next morning, but I'll reach out & let you know if so.
