Work her on the ground first and reward good behavior
Work in-hand and on the lunge with one trot pole, rewarding her if she walks/trots over it, praise her if she is careful and if she bumps it, give her a reassuring pat to let her know she is okay. The advance to a line of trot poles and do the same building up. 😊
@aoibhebarretxt thank you so much!
Walk over them a few times // then walk her over them with u (on foot) then lunge her over them then do that a few times then walk her over them with u on her
