Today, Charlotte, Evie's friend, took Anya to the beach for some acrobats. What a difference to see her now!
Anya was a very spooky, nervous and fidgety horse, but with Eve's patience and playing the Parelli Games with her and Charlotte's nutty desire to turn Anya into a Circus horse/Indian pony with rider and bow and arrow, she is now such a happy relaxed horse. Where before she wasn't interested in anyone, now she looks forward when Eve comes into the paddock, "Hey, what are we doing today!"
When we first got her ,after a few weeks, I thought, oh no! I have bought the wrong type of horse for my daughter, she spooks, bucks and is very nervous in general, too dangerous for my 11 year old daughter to go galloping off on adventures by herself! But Eve refused to let her go and believed in her heart that Anya would become her friend and horse of her dreams. Now Anya is barefoot, bitless bridle, bareback and happy! BBB!
Easier said than done! But she was right, look at her now. Steady as a rock!
Time out to relax and meditate on what we just accomplished!
