I wanted to tell you about something that happened today.
I was with Frenzi (my old Haflinger mare) in the school for disabled children, like we do twice a week. She hasnít got a very hard job to do there, basically just walking with kids on her back for 90min. So itís very much a routine job for us. Today however there was a wedding in town and lots of cars were driving by honking their horns. At first she just got a little irritated, but when they didnít stop, she got really scared and would not walk anymore. She went sideways and tried to trot in place, so we broke off to not endanger the kids and I walked her home. (Normally I ride her there and back, which is about half an hour one way) She pranced through traffic with her head held high and all muscles in her neck just like solid rock. (and she has a lot of neck)
Frenzi is very very rarely scared of anything, but when she is, she is difficult to bring back. So for the whole way home I did Connect Groundwork with her. Lots of heartgirth and shoulder delineation and V and she was shaking her head and being like rock in my hand. And about half way home she took the first real breath and I continued to walk with her and work on her head and neck and shoulders and tried to get her weight shifted back and by the time we were home she wasnít perfectly relaxed, but she licked and chewed and had her head and neck in a better position. 500kg and cold-blood Haflinger, who raises her head and goes cement is a scary thing, so I was happy I had your tools to bring her back. Iím sure she will be sore tomorrow, poor thing, so Iíll do some more bodywork with her tomorrow. And maybe I introduce her to my carís signal-horn at some point. :)
Lots of love from Christina and Frenzi
