I like to give Mara free time in the round pen to freely move out and expend pent up energy, that’s what we did first again today.
Then while saddling up to ride out Cindy snapped this photo showing how I have Mara ‘hold’ my chaps (thanks Cindy!) An example of how I try to have Mara calmly accept novel stimuli each day as a way to continuously build our bond of trust and her experiences.
Our ride then was walking to Sam’s and back, Mara moved out at an extended walk to really stretch her legs, it felt great.
We also found these dainty white flowers.
