Behind Bella . . .   Leave a comment

. . . or, Bella’s behind.

Bella’s been kind of left out while I refresh my driving skills with Kody, but lately I’ve been putting her back in training.  The first step is reviewing her ground driving.  This is what it looks like from the . . . ah, “driver’s seat”.

She remembers her training very well, considering it’s been several months.  We’ve had no problems except a couple of spooks.  She has a light little mouth and is easy to pull up and restart.  Once she gets a good look at a “scary”, she doesn’t spook at it again.  That’s promising.  And she stops and stands quietly, or I wouldn’t have been able to get this picture.

Pretty soon it’ll be time to put a saddle on her again; then . . . well, we’ll take it slow and careful.  So far, I think we’re both doing well.

I’ve never quite understood . . . Bella’s straight up and down; why are the fences in the background all slanty?  Is it something that can be corrected?  Oh, well.
