Bitsy after a good workout!
Friday was a very good day for Bitsy and me. I rode her in the arena and, as I said last Friday, we worked on getting her to follow her nose, go in a circle on a loose rein and we started to work on a brake. Well, she did great in all these areas. She is still a little uncertain about some stuff but she is starting to work with me in the program, instead of working against me. So, very good day of progress with Bitsy. She is learning to stand at the rail without issue.
GRAY after a bath.
The GRAY horse is starting to work at the end of a lead. He does not know a thing. He is worried, nervous, pretty much the same way Bitsy was when she got here. We will keep working on the ground, getting him versed in the exercises and as he starts to settle we will think about getting him rode.
This Sunday we got another horse in for training. This was a good surprise. Kathy and I did a round pen demo a couple years ago now and a fella that was there for it, that seemed to not be very impressed with what we were doing, told a friend about us and she, Wanda, brought us a stud horse to train for her. He is 4 years old and has never had a saddle on. So I get to start from the very beginning, which is what I do with all of them that come here so not sure why I keep saying we are going to start from the beginning… but I am. I will get pictures of him today for you.
I could sure use your help to get in front of more people, to be successful in this endeavor. So if you think about it, please tell other folks about my blog. It’s a good way for folks to get to know me and what I’m doing around the place and who knows, they may even benefit from the information. You can like my facebook page or just send the blog on to folks you think would like it. They don’t have to be horsey people either. I have a ton of folks that don’t even own horses that are reading it everyday..
Thanks for the help. Coffee anyone?
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
