At breakfast that morning we had had a huge discussion on why we feel building trust and a partnership with our horse is so important. Notice Jesse is working with only her skinny halter and I have the lead rope tied around her neck; at best it can only be used as a neck strap. She is working solely on body position and voice commands, next to a road (traffic passed us a few times) and a stranger moving all over trying to get good pictures. Later that day, the guests said they thought they "got" the trust thing.
