Also, she is learning that we control her feet. She needs to understand that the person working with her is her herd leader. She has a more dominate personality, so she tests for herd dominance on a daily basis. Most horses do this regularly, but with her youth and relative lack of experience, she tests more strongly than an older, more experienced horse might.
I've instructed Kid 3 to ask Xoe for a couple steps back every time Xoe comes to her. As you'll see in the video, Xoe tends to come in a little faster than desirable. It seems to be helping.
Saturday I taught Xoe how to "send." Basically, she stands to one side of me. I ask her to pass in front of me and as her tail passes my belly button, she should swing her rear around so that she is facing me again about an arm's length away. We had a knock down, drag-out battle with this exercise. She just wanted to charge past me at top speed and keep going. We were both sweaty and out of breath by the time she consented to try it my way. It wasn't perfect, but it was a good starting point to build upon.
She has been doing so good and cooperative with most everything we've taught her, I almost wasn't surprised to see her act out a bit. I think it will help her progress in the long run. Sometimes it seems like a horse that struggles a bit at first will surpass a horse that just cooperates all the time.
