Lunge soundness check

She had been sound after shoeing, but I wanted to make sure we were firing on all cylinders, so I lunged her today. She was actually a little unsound at first in front, but after one or two circles it abated. Sometimes horses anticipate pain when they have had it for a while. Once she figured out she was painless, she trotted beautifully. She really has a free shoulder and a lot of drive!

Canter was a bit disorganized, but she managed a few quite easy flying lead changes when she picked up the wrong lead. She got tired pretty quickly but was game throughout.
