First Ride on Wings

I had my first ride on Wings tonight. She was great. We did quite a bit of ground work first. She quickly figured out that moving away from the whip was much better than moving towards it. She also learned to stand still for mounting (and getting over the scary mounting block — aka kitchen step stool). After I was on, we really just worked at the walk in getting her to relax. She figured it out, stretched downward and out and even learned how to step to the outside (off the inside shoulder). I’m really proud of her. She is definitely a thinker. I like it! 🙂
