a success! gratitude to Natasha

Who came up to help with the mouting again and was able to spot an error i'd been making - essentially, leave the rope halter etc on whilst I mount until that is established, so that if she moves as I get on I can send her straight off to work again without having to step down and put everything back on.

so by the finish i was getting on and off no bother!

Then Natasha rode for a while - Molly had worked really hard by the time we'd finished everything (I'd already done about 40 minutes groundwork time Natasha arrived .....) so left her in with her cooler on

edited to add - I've added a new link which I anticipate will be of interest ...

Good work its does help having another pair of eyes on the ground its easy to fall into habits then not be able to work out where your going wrong!

Great! The sooner Ms. Molly has to work after she moves on her own the better. Keeping the halter on so you can get after her right away is a perfect solution! Glad Natasha was there to help! *S*

The training just keeps on progressing.
