Spirit and I got our first lesson since moving to Rancho and we had a fantastic time doing some jumping gymnastic exercises. Not only was Spirit incredibly willing and quick-learning, but I know that she and I both really enjoyed ourselves. We've got just under 2 weeks to get ready for our schooling at Shepherd Ranch, and she and I are both definitely up to the challenge!
Plus, over the last few visits, Spirit has made a huge improvement in terms of her ground manners. She is learning to stand like a lady even without crossties, and is getting bit-by-bit better with tacking up. All in all, she's doing great!
