15th September, 2016 Ivy Evening

Last night I had a quiet little session with Ivy, just pottering around the top paddock to see what she would and wouldn't allow. Astonishingly she let me remove her rug, somewhat gingerly, while she was completely free and even when she walked away a few paces, she soon came back again. Then it was scarf on, headcollar on, and leading to the left and to the right. For the first time she went on the higher bridge lengthways, committing herself to putting all four feet on the bridge and standing perfectly calmly.
