Connection established...but not maintained.
Once Jack discovered Nancy and her treats, she'd give him one and then pick up her chair and move somewhere else. At first, he would not follow. But, slowly, he spent less time pacing the rail and more time approaching her and getting paid. When the time was up, we had seen him connect a few times, but he still returned to his railwalking. This horse will need a lot more of this kind of session to extend his trust enough to allow himself to come "in."
