Yeah talking about that was starting to bring me down. June is.. Mostly good! She gives to pressure when leading so easy. She whoas great. Picks up her feet. Backs better than any horse I've ever had (and she was STUBBORN at first), flexes really easy, we're still working on yielding to fore and hind quarters, sometimes she's perfect and sometimes she doesn't quite go the direction I want but we're getting there. She lets me hop up on her back no problem, flex her from up there, sometimes she'll walk when I say walk (we're working on voice commands, walk and back right now), then I can whoa her, and back her up with very light pressure and a voice command. We're still working on lunging. Tomorrow I'll be working with her, so I'll do some good desensitizing to the lunge whip, and then I'm going to apply slight pressure and as SOON as she takes a step, I'm going to drop all pressure. And repeat. Repeat. Repeat. All the way around the round pen. It'll be a slow process I'm sure but I think it's the only way I'll be able to teach her with out scaring her. If she hadn't of had a bad experience the first time lunging I'm sure it'd be easier, but I've already tried everything I can think of and she still gets too worked up. Once we get past this lunging ordeal we can really make some progress. When I'm on her back I do not spend any more than 3-4 minutes on her, becuase I don't want to mess up any of her training before we get to long lining, etc. but I do want her use to me being up there and I don't want her to get bored and start acting out becuase I'm not doing anything but sitting still. If all that made sense.. Sorry for the rambling.
Oh, and I have saddled her up a couple times, and she doesn't think anything of it, but I haven't sat in the saddle yet.
She's a great horse though. She's very affectionate to me and seems to have a lot of trust in me now. She'll follow me anywhere, even when I fixed up the new round pen and was carrying panels around and banging them on everything, she was right there with me instead of getting spooked like my last horse would have. I haven't worked on getting her to lay down with me (no ropes) lately, but last time I did she was seriously thinking about it.
