Bringing Lady back into work

I know there are many of us with horses who have been 'resting' through all the bad weather. However my lovely Lady has been very poorly indeed and spent the first two weeks of New Year in hospital. She had cholangia hepatitis, liver infection. You can see in the pic where she had a biopsy done.

She has lost loads of weight and muscle too.

So we are starting back to work on the long reins. I think she is enjoying it actually. Here we go:

Not the best pics but it's hard to take them whilst longreining!

We do clicker training so I've used the mat to get everything adjusted whilst she stands:

And we finished like this with lots of clicks and treats for a good girl:

Any other clicker trainers about? Or tips for long reining?

Poor Lady, is she quite recovered now ? I had no idea she had been ill, I remember when you got her and thought she was so lovely.
Nice to see her back and working, she looks beautiful despite her poor start to the year.
Love the idea of teaching her to stand still on the mat.
