It’s time to start to concentrate on riding Tucson. His name is really Flint, but I could not remember it when I started to write the blog. I talk to his owner last night on the phone and she filled me in.
We will still work on ground skills, putting more energy in them and pushing him a little harder as we go, but will try to finish up his day with riding. A few days in the arena and then we will see what the world is like out side. Tucson is making great progress. His owner, Jan, has done a great job in preparing him for this start. Because Jan has done such a good job we are able to move forward in his training to riding, perhaps a week or so faster then I normally would. Because Jan really understands what Tucson needs, chances are he will not be here very long. She will be riding a lot when she gets him home and that is what he will really need after he has the basics down.
Zeb is making progress, but slow. Horses do have their own personalities’ and figuring out how to get inside their heads can at time, be a challenge. The great thing about Zeb is, we own him, so there is no hurry. No need to rush his training. We can spend time working on the things he needs help with and not have to put too much pressure on him..
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
