So it has been a little over a week. She is currently in a small paddock, still wearing the halter and lead, which i HATE but it is the only way to catch her. If i walk up to her and try to pet her before picking up the lead then she will spook away. Poor girl... I think someone really abused her in the past because as soon as i get close to her she starts trembling and leans her body as far away as she possibly can. We are making TONS of progress though, and i think we are only a couple days away from taking the lead rope off.
Oh and she is TINY! I will be able to ride her.... but i think she is probably only 14.2 or so. She is going to need a little owner!

On another GREAT note! I was able to help out the lovely lady that runs the N.Cali chapter of http://canterusa.org/california/ They turned out a 3y/o filly into a 5acre pasture and then couldn't catch her. She was being a very stuborn lil filly! So i offered my time this weekend and was able to consistently catch and handle this filly, then show the lady my methods for catching her. It was a very fun experience, and i hope to help them with training in the future as well! Check out the website, the filly is ADORABLE!
