A few things I hope to get done with the ponies this week. Want to get Leo saddled and I hope rode this week. Will depend on if he starts to settle down with his ground work. His owner will be here Tuesday. Not sure we can get him rode by then but will get him saddled today.
Casino, I will continue to saddle him and do his ground work. Hope to get him rode this week as well. I was told that he may have trouble with the bit. Putting the bit in his mouth, so we will address that this week now that we know something about it.
Thunder, I will continue to ride him in the arena, developing more control as well as keeping his ground work up. He is side passing down the rail on the ground so will work on getting him to understand the cues for that to happen from the saddle.
All in all I’m very happy with the way things are going with the horses here in training. I’m going to take Tim the gray, my horse, over to the other barn so as to have a horse that I can ride with my students. It’s been a while sense I have had a chance to ride any of my horses. Am thinking about selling one or two of my horses. With the price of hay and now that things are coming around for the training and clinic side of my business there’s no reason to just let them stand around. Someone could get a lot of good out of them, so will see about that in the next couple of weeks.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
