Daniel and Nightingale - Week 13

Dora has really started to soften this week. She is finally starting to let her guard down just a bit and is enjoying our company more and more.

Her ridden work is coming along, she still reacts to me putting too much leg on. Because she is highly sensitive her aids are so soft. The slightest shift of weight backwards in the saddle and she stops.

 We also did some float loading with her again which is not issue at all. We have an angle load float so will have to start training her on a straight load for the competition.

 On Friday we wormed Dora again so on Saturday Bec took her for a nice long in hand walk through the bush. Dora loved it, she was drinking out of the puddles and eating bush tucker. She even found a few logs to stand on which is her favourite trick!
