If you didn't already know, Dancer is incredibly stubborn. For any other creature, it wouldn't be that much of a problem but when a clever 1,200 pound mare decides she doesn't want to do something I ask, it's either going to take some brawn or some brains. Sometimes both. Needless to say, properly and patiently starting a horse is tough, dirty work.

She's shown by how much she's absorbed in so short a time that there's real potential in her. Dancer is incredibly smart and may be stubborn but fortunately, so am I.
