Unsuspecting, sweet Lucy.
I decided not to ride yesterday, and instead, I brought some water bottles to the barn:
looks harmless, no?
|WHAT THE HELL?|
She was a little upset at first but then relaxed and did quite well! I did this because she gets very worried about sounds coming from behind her, and she does not like when something gets caught in her tail in the woods and it gets dragged. I'd also like to teach her how to drag a log or something with weight, so this was kind of the first step to desensitizing her to having something bouncing along behind her.
