After confirming that I have a reliable halt, back, go and change of direction with a halter and lead rope, I move forward by introducing changes of direction in a bridle on the lunge line.
This is the first time I ever worked with Moon in a bridle and also the first time I ever lunged her.
In the first part of the video I review some of my thoughts on safety, necessary equipment, and the key training steps to "test" before moving on to ground driving.
