Several volunteers have been working with Nola since her last update, and we are happy to say she has made some great progress! She has become relatively easy to catch, has calmed down significantly leading around the ranch and during class. She does tend to want to crowd her handler and claim space, so we are working on teaching her respect for our space. Overall, she is becoming a better citizen and is on her way to being a superstar companion horse!

Nola has been just enjoying being a horse. She can be quite reactive when being worked with and is difficult to catch. Nola tends to show herd bound tendencies and has trouble focusing on her handler when away from her herd mates, even just a short distance. She currently lives with another mare and they get a long great.
Nola is a bigger mare that will form a strong bond with her herd mate/s. She is halter trained and knows groundwork but can be hard to catch when not worked with regularly. Nola gets along with mares and geldings. Nola stands at about 15 HH.
