I brought her in and groomed her, putting some show sheen on her tail and mane for a small beauty shop treatment. She looked very pretty. Then I tacked up and rode in the arena. She was slightly tight at first, but in about 45 seconds, her walk was much improved. The stretching work is paying off!
Her trot work was also mostly relaxed, but her canter work was really good. She took several deep breaths and chuffed several times, and even had stretchy canter. Wonderful.
