Intro to the Field Day Way

She was a little unsettled in the cross ties – pulled back a few times and would raise her head when asked to yield to the halter.  So before grooming I took her into the indoor and briefly lunged her and then did some in hand work.  We talked about yielding to the halter and dropping her neck when asked.  She came around nicely.  It is easier for her to bend left than right.

Then we groomed her, trimmed her bridle path and her mane and slightly banged her tail and tacked up.  She wanted to be against the bit for the first few minutes, but came around nicely and did some nice work.  Good start.
