This is one silly animal. She dislikes anything you do to her on the ground in the way of tying, bathing, clipping or other things I’ve taken for granted with our other 3 horses. Always looking for a way out. I finally have gotten her to clip with ease. Persistence and patience prevailed. I just drop the lead rope on the ground and shave her bridle path and muzzle. But don’t you dare tie her to clip her. ha ha! Don’t know If I’ve ever encountered a horse with this much flight mode and so many insecurities. Working with her can be a daily challenge. I try not to find to much fault with her, because she has so much potential. I worked her in a round pen for several months, teaching her to walk, trot and lope on command, on and off a lunge line. Her athletic ability is phenomenal. She reaches and drives beautifully, and has a low sweeping extended trot, that’s breathtaking to watch. Her ability to turn around and send her in another direction is spectacular to watch as well. She collects, drops down on her front end and rolls back over her hocks like an accomplished athlete. Now, bathing is another story. She fusses about the hose, the water being sprayed over her and she runs backwards while approaching her with the scarey green snake. Once I pressure her into backing up across the yard, she figures out she’d rather move forward than back and settles in nicely.
