First off, this is kind of a thanks for 100 subs video as well as a horse video!!!!
Thank you so much for 100subs!!!!! (almost! lol) THANK YOU YOUTUBERS!!

So, this is about Luna my 2 and a half year old filly's 5th 'free ride' and before that she gave 2 lead rides. (She's had three 5 minute long free rides, then two sessions of 20 minutes, this is the second session.) I'll post a raw clip in a couple of days showing HOW I finally got her to trot continuously.

And understands everything now! We haven't cantered under saddle yet, but honestly I'm not sure if she's developed enough or not so I'm only going to do it once or twice in the next couple of months.
But she knows left and right very well, she stops SOOO fast as soon as I ask, don't even half to touch the reins to get her to stop either. She is JUST learning 'back up' (this video is her second attempt at it, and she does so well with such a light touch).
She leads with no pressure or pulling, follows me around to a whistle I make, loads in a trailer really well, goes in and out of skinny entrances and strange buildings, stands on and walks across tarps as well as walks with them on her back, lets me hang out under her and crawl everywhere, went from uncatchable to a horse that will walk across a field to say 'hi', lunge her with only voice commands, jump on bareback from the ground and ride in a halter, and nothing fazes her!

Last 20 minute free ride though I had issues getting her to trot and stay in a trot, and she even bucked over a dozen times! (such cute little things!) But I was doing something incorrectly, so I blame me :(

I figured out what to do, and this video was the result! so proud of the little munchkin!! I ordered a brand new western saddle, bridle and blanket as well as a tan leather halter with an engraved nameplate for her (should all arrive in a week), SO EXCITED!!!!

oh, and she has drastically changed colors! I'll post a video in a month when she's changed even more to show the difference, but her coat is now all shaggy and spotted/dappled and her muzzle turned all white! She had a black/gray nose with pink spots, and now it's all just white fur! So cute!

She's just one of the best things to ever happen to me!

And.... I need more clips!!!! My camera is TERRIBLE and no one has been coming out with me since it's been so cold, already snowing a bit here. Hopefully I get a shiny pretty camcorder around christmas/birthday! :D *hint hint*
