Bella has become a solid mount, strong and surefooted. Her balance is improving steadily. She is still short of fully mature physically, was well as mentally and emotionally.
We have begun working her more regularly on the short line to improve her shoulder-in ability and will likely work on this through the winter with the intent of having her ready by spring to continue it from the saddle.
Meanwhile, we will continue to give her as much saddle time as weather will allow and continue her sensory desensitization to prepare her to start working the the elements used in medieval gaming. She is brave enough when working with other horses, but still gets a bit edgy when she is on her own.
