Side pass to open/close gate

Raven and I went out on our 43rd ride in the neighborhood today w/bareback pad and, as always, her bitless bridle.  We worked on turns on shoulder and hip, then side pass both directions.  When we went to leave the pen, she did a perfect side pass to open the gate

Today there were sounds she had tiny issues with, but overall a very nice ride.  I’m sure the fact that she got to burn off her winter energy at the big arena yesterday helped a lot.   When we got home I worked with her on now doing her side pass to close the gate.. first time ever closing, but after just a bit of frustration, she did it perfect!  I LOVE the try in this girl.
