Letting go in her back

 

Elsa was quite pleased with herself at the end of the day


I brought her in and groomed her and tacked her up and she was her usual lovely self. Under saddle at first she was tight in her neck and back and over reactive to the leg. We did a lot of flexion and finally got her to let go in walk and then worked our way up to a loose trot and canter. The very good news is that in the last half of the session she was allowing me to rest a calf on her without over-reacting. Really excellent.
