    We did it! Hillary has her first drive on Wednesday and she was fantastic! We stayed in my ring and did walk, trot, and many turning exercises. She was fantastic! I’m Thursday we hitched again started in the ring then went down a trail and she was so good! I think she really enjoys it. I definitely do! I can’t wait to continue! (I figure I’ll do some updates on her every now and then and ask questions and share experiencess)

    Her attitude definitely looks as though she understands her job. Very exciting for you. She looks alot like my Midnight, also in training. What kind of bit are you using?

    Thank you! I’m using a single jointed eggbutt snaffle right now. It works great for her as she is super sensitive and responsive! I would love to try a Mullen mouth or a double jointed and just to see if she likes anything else!
