So I have been working with this lady for over a year now. Molly is a 30 year old thoroughbred with Cushing. She was volatile and needed careful handling. Also she was not one to be touched with out her full consent and she hardly ever gave that.
But we have been making major progress and she has mellowed down and can appreciate a hug now. Physically she has also become softer, the tension and rigidness have gone.
So today we thought lets see if she would like to do some work in liberty with us. Her owner has never done it before. The object of this first session was just to follow her lead and see what that would bring us. And she loved it! (as did her owner who was videoing us)
