I've been working to be a partner with my filly, and decided we needed to go on a "field trip" so we hired a nice experienced woman to trailer us. I didn't know her, but it turned out she's pretty traditional and when my filly (whose only trailering experience wasn't very good, but a long year ago) resisted, the woman's main plan was to "show her she had no choice" and "crowd her a little" and keep her tied so that she "couldn't get away." That's not the way we've been working together. I'm not a forceful person. I couldn't tell her I always give my very intelligent Kipa the option of an opinion; that my main method when things get rough is to move her feet (not tie her); and would she please stop PATTING her --- we do stroking. . . I'm mad at myself. After almost an hour and three broken lines I was able to call it a day. At least I didn't let things get rough. I told her going wasn't important, just the process, and if this is where we stopped, fine. The lady was very nice about it, anyway. Now to find a trailer I can borrow to set up in my yard. . .
