Cora 2-27-09

Cora is coming along. She tests me every step of the way, but I think we are making progress. She still has an adversion to pressure on her head-very frustrating, but she makes up for it by being so accepting of other tasks.

 

I have never seen a tougher horse. She is a real true challenge. It is nice to see her in a new situation when she actually lightens up and looks to me for guidance, but those moments, so far, have been few and far between.

 

She was good today. We worked on the ground-since noone else was around and went for a walk..yielding her hindquarters, stopping, backing-lounging-tying. She will do well in the in-hand portion of the event. I'm going to introduce her to the trailer next week.

 

We don't have much more time. I can't believe anyone took two mares with only 70 days to train them. I am very curious to see how those people did with two horses. I know I have had my hands full with this one-although maybe you get two chances to get an agreeable horse??? I guess maybe some don't have 5 other horses they have to work on a daily basis and give lessons??? Maybe they have more time? Kudos to them for taking on that challenge!

I am with you on the 2 horses. I could not imagine trying to squeeze in 2. I have this J O B that keeps getting in my way with only he 1.

Keep chipping away at Cora. If it makes you feel any better, Faith is presenting me some challenges as well. One day at a time...........
