She didn't do anything bad per se, but she was a nervous wreck and was constantly looking over at the trees, and never stopped chewing on her bit. When they got really loud, she would boogie sideways into the middle of the arena. Because my bareback skills are a little rusty, it wasn't easy to keep her on the rail and focused, but we managed to get in a pretty good ride, I guess. I considered just working her down at the opposite end of the arena, but that's the really hard half, so we just made due.
|Even here she's checking out the trees...|
|Here she was just embarrassed by her behavior.|
So it looks like Lilly will spend the next five days in her stall. She'll be going out at night, but during the day she'll be inside with the fan blowing on her.
