With this makeover we only have 68 days to train a wild, unhandled mustang to compete on a national level. This challenge with Cora is proving to be just that. A challenge. We had some trust issues early on, but I think she is coming around. I really wish I had an additional 30 days with her-but such is the challenge.
The vet was out last week and took care of her teeth. He said she had capped teeth which made her mouth sore. That was one set back in training-trust is another and the fact that she is a dominate mare is the other.
Although for all the trouble we have done quite a bit; leads, lounges, starting to back well, accepts a rider in the walk-trot, and is now coming up to me of her own will.
We will see if she gives me enough to feel safe at the competiton, as we only have 38 days left!
Wow this one is flying by....I would like Cora to find a good , safe home.
