Donna and her new Boy!
Meet Donna. Donna was a participant at our last clinic. She and I have worked together on her horsemanship over this passed year and she is making great progress. She has had a couple of horses here in training over that time. At this clinic she had a new horse and was very excited about him. She had not done much ground work with him so this was a chance for her to get off to a good start .
Donna is one of the very few folks I have come a crossed, who needed help learning to be softer with her energy. Most of the time it’s the other way around. Folks are to timid and do not get after their horses, to the degree they should. Donna has made great progress in learning to control her emotions when working with horses and it sure showed at this clinic. Looking forward to working with her again soon.
Well it’s another Monday. This week the boys will get a lot more riding in. They are making good progress on their ground work, and we will continue that but mix some riding in there too.
Tenawa is relaxing a bit and figuring out that being with me is a better deal then not. Ilene, his owner, already rides him so riding is not the problem, control is. So we will work on that and getting him to soften. He will be heading home next week so theirs not much time to get a lot done. However, Ilene has agreed to bring him back if she feels he needs more work, or if she feels she needs more help.
Bop/Buddy is doing better. I don’t think much has been done with him in the past, from just the little I have had a chance to work with him. But, he is a good-minded horse. Does not seem to have a sour bone in his body. I think he just needs more time and Katy, his owner, has agreed to allow him to stay another month. That’s really going to take the pressure off Bop/Buddy and me. So looking forward to more time with him here at the ranch.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
