Mason Sue's boy!
It has been pretty cold here the past couple of days. It’s don’t usually get very cold for any length of time but it’s still pretty cold this morning.
Will head over to the barn and check everything, let it warm up a bit and the start to work with Tucson. He is getting to stay another week here with Kathy and me. He will head home this coming weekend if everything goes as planned.
He is really making really good progress. Tucson will be used for trail riding mostly and he is sure ready for that. The owner is a experienced horseman so there are many things that I have not had the time to teach him that she will have to follow thru on. Tucson is a young horse and had never been ridden before he came here. My job was to get him rode and, as safe as I could make him in the short time that we had. I think we have done that together, me and Tucson.
I do not recommend anyone being in a hurry when starting a young horse. Why you ask? A young horse has never carried anyone on his or her back before and has to learn how to do that. There is also a lot of mental pressure that we put on horses when we start them under saddle. Some horses handle it pretty good, others need time to ease into that pressure.
The magic pill, time, it something that not many people are willing to swallow when it comes to horses, or anything else for that matter. But, it is the medicine every horse needs but rarely gets.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
