This time we had the advantage of having another trail companion, and the disadvantage that Charisma was very "up" - wanting to walk very fast and to make a beeline for home at the earliest opportunity. At some points, Charisma gave little bucks and spooks, and did a lot of pulling on her reins. Maisie did very well through all of this. Every time she started to get a little excited, or go too fast, or start jigging, she relaxed again when I asked her to. We arrived back at the barn with a loose rein and sufficiently relaxed demeanor, so instead of asking her to do more, I got right off and put her away to reward her for doing what I had asked her to do.
