Developing Tina

I spent time with Tina today, building her confidence and advancing her online work. We honed sideways on the rail, getting a very straight sideways with a light cue. We worked a bit on her leading and staying exactly where I want her. If I trot, she must trot. If I stop, she must immediately stop as well.

We then worked on the circle game and her maintaining gait. We built up to 3 trot laps in each direction. We also built on s-pattern, helping build her draw. Also, did some extreme friendly from all zones - so proud of her for this one! Standing in zone 5 and vigorously hitting the ground with my stick and string! She's done very well... Time to advance again.

Good session!
