Hi Melody,

I just have to tell you this training with you is one of the most empowering things I have ever done! You are the best teacher. I just got in from a 15 minute lesson with Moby and we’ll do another one later. I made the adjustment to only walk beside him on the walk on (not backward). Omg this whole thing working with him / how I approach him / being the leader is such a powerful shift. I feel I am really starting to soak up the mind frame / energy / attitude you are teaching me with each lesson and it’s deepening my relationship with both of my donkeys. Moby can’t get enough, and Abby is interested and yep, you’re right, she’s learned by watching him. I just did a little lesson with her and I’m amazed.

The hardest thing for Moby right now is the Whoa and extending that time. He wants interaction!!! Ha ha. So the rope all over is easier. But he is getting better and is so willing. I did try a Backup! As he was in my face and he’s got it. My adjustment there is to stay where I am (not move toward him while he moves back, I’m the leader, he does what I ask, I’m getting it!)

Thank you again so much, you really are such a gifted teacher! And so encouraging. That’s what I needed. I wasn’t sure if I had what it took. This is so empowering.

I’ll review the info you sent and send you new tack pics too.

Have an awesome weekend 🙂
