Miss Kitty and Ellie are both doing great and making progress with Emily.
Here are some of Emily's words as well as some video clips:

A great first official evening working with these girls. I see so much potential in both of them.
Both spent some time on the patience pole and had baths to cool off. I’m not thrilled with my neighbors shooting off fireworks right next to us but luckily these two didn’t bat an eye.
It’s obvious Miss Kitty doesn’t respect or trust me. We spent a great deal of time working on join up but the reward was great. Though she didn’t fully turn into me, she did stop, lick n chew, and then followed me when I “picked her up”. We worked on some moving her hindquarters and shoulder with the flag then called it quits on a good note.
Ellie I’ll probably hop on tomorrow - spent just a little time moving her on the lungeline and admiring her forward trot. She walked over the bridge and cavaletti and checked out the calves.

Ellie was really wonderful for my evaluation ride on her. Started off with clipping her bridle path - she was worried about the clippers but trusted that I wasnt going to hurt her.
We spent some time in and out of the roundpen, riding in just a halter. She’s here to learn that her idea of quitting time isn’t always her rider’s. A few minor tests but overall we worked through things well.
Midwest Horse Welfare Foundation, Inc. probably shouldn’t send me such nice horses because I won’t want them to leave 😜😉

What a warm evening it was! Between Ellie and Miss Kitty we got quite a bit done, building on the things we’ve been working on the last few days.
Both mares are so different but so incredibly smart - the great part is seeing something “click”.
