I think part of the mare's resistance going right is that we're riding in the indoor, where the footing can be a bit slick if it's wet. The few times it's rained this winter it's poured pretty hard and unfortunately a few spots in the indoor flood. The gutters can't handle it and some water seeps in. I've seen McKenna slip while being turned out in the indoor, and I'm wondering if this A) caused her back injury; and B) makes her more nervous and unwilling to go forward inside. I rode outside Sunday and yesterday and lunged her outside Monday and she was a lot more willing and seemed happier.
