So what should have been a couple of days off turned into a week and a day. I was expecting to be back where we started...again. Pleasantly surprised. I got a nice forward walk, with some contact and when she started creeping along and I gave her a little kick I did not get a temper tantrum or pinned ears, just a faster walk. Even rooting at the reins was very half hearted. A little bit of trot, not terribly forward but without the attitude so that was ok.
