Horse training

I have been a bit distracted lately and I have not posted anything regarding the horse training. Snow's big problem was her ground manners. She was very pushy and "in your face." Most of that was simply curiosity, but she did have a habit of crowding and bumping while on a lead rope. Part of the target training was designed to remedy this problem. I was essentially training her to "heal" off lead. She's not perfect, but she is getting there. She at least knows she is not suppose to be in front of the kong. As you can see in this video, she also tends to eat grass whilst walking. At the end of the video, she is still next to me, but her head is down.

All in all, it is progress. Rome was not built in a day.
