Gigondas has come a long way in her training, despite all the horrible weather this winter. I was a little nervous on Saturday taking her out of her corral for the first time in quite a while, but she remained calm and didn't bolt. She relaxes when I talk to her or sing to her (only Gigondas can stand my singing!) and walked like a lady! I walked her to the arena and she stood for me until I unlatched her lead rope. Then, she took off! Phew! I've been working with her on standing still until I release her. Of course, she had to take a good roll and then off she went, running!
