Well, it appears that Doll has accepted me as a friend. She has been stand-offish and wouldn't let me pet her face without throwing her head up. And catching her in the pasture has been challenging at best. She is as gentle as can be when she has the halter on but getting it on has been hard. I decided that watching this and struggling myself through this haltering process is what has occasionally unnerved me prior to riding. On the days when that happened, I wasn't confident and she felt it. Our trainer said it was going to take time to build trust.
